The Future Symphony Musician

This session is a free event developed for students or orchestra staff interested in understanding and engaging emerging professional musicians.

Location: Old Hickory, Level Three

Who is the future symphony musician? What do they see, hear, think, do and say? In this session, Dr. Tanya Kalmanovitch and Anna-Christina Phillips will apply their perspective as leaders in one of the world’s foremost conservatory professional development programs to provide a snapshot of the orchestral musician of the future.

Music students who graduate today are facing very real challenges that will shape their livelihood and their craft. The impact of these challenges is a cohort of classical musicians who have raised the bar on social responsibility in our field, and carry a greater purpose beyond music for music’s sake. They are the future of our art form. In this session we will explore the world in which they live, the way it shapes their perceptions, and how this new generation of classical musician can engage with challenges.

Tanya Kalmanovitch, Ph. D., faculty, New England Conservatory; associate professor, The New School; Anna-Christina Phillips, associate dean of entrepreneurial musicianship, New England Conservatory
