Here is my best explanation:

'they get a good reception' is the definition.

'first to try lead part with singers in audition' is the wordplay.
I cannot really understand how this works, but
'first' could be 'a' and 'a' is present in the answer.
'part' could be 'te' (te is a kind of part) and 'te' is found in the answer.
This explanation may well be incorrect...
