Tuesday, December 8, 2020

3:00-4:30 PM

Join the HSO and a panel of esteemed artists and arts administrators as we  explore questions such as whether – and how – musician hiring practices should be changed to increase racial and ethnic diversity in American orchestras, the evolving role of orchestral musicians in today’s society, and how students are being trained for a successful career in a professional orchestra.

Panelists include:

Jeri Lynne Johnson, Founder and Artistic Director of the Black Pearl Chamber Orchestra

Afa Dworkin, President and Artistic Director of the Sphinx Organization and recipient of the Kennedy Center’s Human Spirit Award

Abra Bush, Senior Associate Dean of Institute Studies, The Peabody Institute

Kai Rocke, Rosemary and David Good Bassoon Fellow, The Minnesota Orchestra

Jaroslaw Lis, Personnel Manager and Assistant Principal Second Violin, Hartford Symphony Orchestra

We hope you will join us for this critical conversation. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.

This panel discussion will be recorded and available for viewing on HSO to Go in the future.
