The Musicians' Perspective: Creating Collaborative Cultures in Orchestras

Location: Cumberland 5-6, Level Three

Some orchestras are highly collaborative with board, staff, and musicians well aligned; some others would argue that if each constituent part does its job at a high level, there is not much need to collaborate; and some others are outright adversarial. There are probably as many cultures as there are orchestras. A panel of musicians will tackle the question of culture, the often unspoken yet powerful force that drives organizations more than strategy or individual leaders. They’ll consider how culture can support innovation and empowerment, as well as the role culture can play in setting and achieving organizational goals and delivering on mission.

Speakers: Kevin Jablonski, section bass, Nashville Symphony; Bradley Mansell, cellist, Nashville Symphony; Laura Ross, second violin, Nashville Symphony
