Find out now in the May/June issue of Symphony, available both in the long-running print edition and online here. In his Critical Questions column, League President and CEO Jesse Rosen previews a new book from the League, Fearless Journey: Innovation in Five American Orchestras, which reveals the ways orchestras are facing the future by embracing innovation. (The publication is made possible by a generous grant from MetLife Foundation with additional support from the National Endowment for the Arts. The book is now available for download at here.) In his column, Greg Sandow offers a provocative a preview of his coming book, Rebirth: The Future of Classical Music, and asks what might happen if classical music had a 1960s-style revolution of its own. And in an online-only article, Mark Clague and Michael Mauskapf report from the University of Michigan’s recent American Orchestras Summit, where nearly 200 people brainstormed about ways to change our industry. Check out all this and more in the May/June issue of Symphony.
