Posted on: June 30, 2010

Get all the latest news and most provocative thinking about orchestras in the new issue of SymphonyOnline. Available now free of charge here, the July-August edition of the League of American Orchestras’ award-winning magazine features original reporting and in-depth examinations of the issues and challenges orchestras are tackling today. The cover story reveals how the Memphis Symphony Orchestra is aiming to reinvent itself as an indispensible community resource with new programming, new musician contracts, and new business partnerships. A probing article takes us behind the scenes to show how the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra recovered from a series of financial and artistic blows to chart a successful course. And a major article offers a frank survey of ethnic diversity at American orchestras—how inclusiveness is a goal for every orchestra, yet true diversity remains elusive. Plus: news briefs, personnel moves, and direct links to website and online resources to enrich the reading experience more. Exclusive, online-only content includes an excerpt from Charles Rosen’s new book, Music and Sentiment, and our popular Stat of the Arts page, which looks at classical music by the numbers. Be sure to share SymphonyOnline with friends, colleagues, and anyone interested in orchestras.
