Join the Strathmore Speakers Series and Onondaga Free Library for an evening with LeMoyne College professor and chair of the Visual & Performing Arts Department, Travis Newton. Orchestras are communities, and they also serve communities. Those who choose to make the orchestra enterprise their life’s work face a host of challenges that have beset orchestra managers since the very beginning of the art form, alongside new challenges that continue to arise in the 21st century. In his new book, “Orchestra Management Handbook: Building Relationships in Turbulent Times,” Newton provides a significant head-start for people entering this complicated, exciting, and challenging line of work. In this conversation, Newton will focus on the many facets of orchestra management through the lens of relationship and community building.
This event will be held on Tuesday, February 7th at 7 pm both in-person at Onondaga Free Library and virtually on Zoom. Like all Strathmore Speaker Series and Onondaga Free Library events, this presentation is free and open to the public.
