Community Identity in Programming

  • Omni Hotel Nashville 250 5th Avenue South Nashville, TN, 37203 United States (map)

Location: Broadway Ballroom C, Level Two

Orchestras today are increasingly looking to their own communities when programming and commissioning new pieces. Hear from composers and administrators on the front line of this work: how are new compositions created with community in mind; how are programs curated that reflect community; what challenges and successes were encountered; and what was the community’s response?

Moderator: Teddy Abrams, music director, Louisville Orchestra

Speakers: Eun Lee, executive director, The Dream Unfinished; Tania León, composer; Lembit Beecher, composer

Made possible by a generous grant from The Aaron Copland Fund for Music.
