The New York Philharmonic hasn't found a replacement for the recently-retired Stanley Drucker yet. The current strategy is to invite a series of guest clarinetists to sit in with the orchestra for some period of time to see how they fit in. For some reason, they're refusing to identify each individual during their guest stints. I can't say I understand this; given the intertubes, how long is it going to take a critic with a phone cam - not that I know any of those - to get a line on the identity of any clarinetist good enough to audition for the NYPO??
That said, good luck! Except, see my headline. No poaching allowed!
Update, January 15: Dan Wakin has a longer follow-up to the ArtsBeat piece. Personal to Dan: San Francisco Symphony has been quite forthcoming about the identities of musicians sitting in with the orchestra for a try-out period. I saw Assistant Principal Violist Katie Kadarauch and Associate Principal Horn Nicole Cash when they sat in with the orchestra, and the press office was happy to tell me their names.
