The Conductor Panel Discussion

  • Enjoy this panel discussion, featuring our three remarkable panelists, all conductors with direct connections to both the HSO and Marin Alsop:  Jonathan Rush (now Assistant Conductor of Baltimore Symphony Orchestra), Alexandra Arrieche (Music Director of the Henderson Symphony Orchestra), and HSO’s Music Director Carolyn Kuan, moderated by HSO Assistant Conductor Adam Boyles.

Confronting Anti-Black Racism in American Orchestras

  • Join renowned violinist and recent HSO guest artist Randall Goosby, along with other nationally-recognized artists and arts administrators, for a wide-ranging discussion on the Black experience in the orchestral field, and for an exploration on how the HSO can help make our art form more equitable and inclusive.

Confronting the Audition Process in American Orchestras

  • 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.

2020 Young Artists Competition
