Session 21 | Network Meeting | Friday, 16 May 2014 | 15:00 - 15:45 | Conference Room 1
This session will explore the future of orchestras in Europe in light of public spending cuts. The discussion will cover areas including the possibility of increased touring and changing audience expectations of what an orchestra should be. Which orchestras are best prepared for the upcoming changes – private or state funded? Which funding structures are able to make orchestras flexible and safe at the same time? What expectations do young musicians have about their future in an orchestra? All these questions will be put to orchestra managers, musicians, promoters, festival leaders and other industry experts in an open discussion.
Get together, brainstorm, discuss, develop and find new members. Classical:NEXT provides professional networks from all across the globe with a platform for their meetings.
