Orchestras for Tomorrow: The Work Starts Now focuses on resilience, change, vitality, and relevance. During three days of learning and exchange, we will look at the evolution of our workforce, the art we make, our leadership, our audiences, and our artists in an ever-changing world. The conference will feature a mixture of expert keynotes, provocative presentations, practical tools, and ‘crowdsourced’ content from colleague orchestras. Join us in Hamilton, Ontario for important conversations about the ways that orchestras can prepare for and respond to change-and thrive!
The fee chart for the conference is available here. Complementary registration will be offered for up to 15 musicians (total) from member orchestras who are sending a non-musician to the conference. Selected conference sessions will be livestreamed.
The main conference runs from May 20-22. On Saturday May 23, a day specifically designed for board members, music directors, musicians and management at smaller budget orchestras (annual revenues under $400,000) will take place.
