harp tuning at auditions and competitions

    When there are many competitors at an audition (or a competition), and not enough harps for everyone to have their own, how do you manage the tuning? For example, if a competitor has to play on a harp that has gone out of tune since the last candidate played it, does the audition committee give them time to fix the tuning, and forgive them for the first excerpt that has been played out of tune? I would be curious to know the different ways that this problem is dealt with. In orchestra auditions, it is very important to know that the candidate can tune the harp.
