League of American Orchestra’s National Conference, June 7 - 17, to Include New Voices, Showcase Performances by Ten U.S. Orchestras
Wynton Marsalis, Renowned Musician, Composer, and Bandleader, Opening Plenary Keynote in Conversation with League President and CEO Simon Woods on June 7, 2021 at 3:30pm
Examining where orchestras are now and looking ahead to the future, the League’s National Conference, “Embracing a Changed World,” will tackle the big questions through new perspectives, actionable content, and provocative discussion.
Five thematic days will include emcees, panel discussions, and facilitated open chat, each day focused on one critical question (full session information coming soon):
- Concert Hall vs. Digital: What new opportunities and challenges are emerging, and how do we balance the need for both engagement and revenue?
- Better Together: What responsibilities and opportunities do orchestras have to deepen their relationships with their communities?
- Showing Up for Racial Equity: What shifts across the board can we make in order to progress towards a more equitable, post-pandemic future? What new tools and approaches do we need in order to sustain and expand this work?
- New Directions: How has a year of adversity and innovation changed our approach to programming and the concert experience?
- Reframing the Narrative: How do we make a compelling case that resonates with government, funders, and the public as a new chapter in the work of orchestras begins?
