If somebody gives me a long list of songs with no explanation, I assume they know all of them and I get to choose which ones I want to focus on. I will come into an audition prepared with as many as I have had time to prep and will let them know what I worked on, and will say no if they call something I didn't prepare. That one's easy. Politics has become much more divisive in recent years than it used to be. I don't have to be best friends with everyone I play music with. It's more fun to hang out with people who have views I respect, but it's not a deal breaker. On social media, there are ways to fix it so that not everyone can see everything I post. I do this with anyone new I add to my FB page until I get a chance to see what their views are- if ever. They might well be doing the same thing and if that's the case it's always going to be puppies and kittens, which is okay with me.
