“I’ve gotten concerts out of relationships that have formed through Twitter—concerts come from strange places these days,” says 32-year-old violist Jennifer Stumm, who appears on the cover of the Winter issue of Symphony. Stumm is one of six emerging artists who share their personal stories about the challenges and joys they face as young classical soloists in today’s rapidly changing musical world. Elsewhere in the latest issue, meet the orchestras that are bringing the music to their people, learn how orchestras are bringing new music to the fore, and read about the ways orchestras are expanding the definition of cultural diplomacy—whether it’s 7,000 miles away from home or in their own communities.
