Philadelphia Orchestra tuba player Carol Jantsch has accepted a teaching post at Yale University. Fans of her work in the orchestra need not despair. She starts at Yale in the fall, but will commute from Philadelphia to New Haven, where she expects to have two students.

Jantsch said there would be no change in her status with the Philadelphia Orchestra.

"I am not leaving the orchestra or taking any leave [of absence]," she said in an email.
