The first Classical:NEXT Online Global Orchestra Meet Up brought us up to date with status reports from various regions around the world, thanks to Mark Pemberton (ABO), Nathaly Ossa Alzate (AEOS), Katherine Carleton (Orchestras Canada), Philippe Fanjas (AFO), Jesse Rosen (LAO) as well as Rudolph Tang who reported from China.
When the floor opened, two key questions of universal relevance arose:
