Posted on: May 27, 2015

On Tuesday (5/26) at Ideastream.org (Cleveland), WCPN host Dee Perry previews the League of American Orchestras Annual Conference 2015 this week, hosted by the Cleveland Orchestra. Covered in Perry’s conversation with League President and CEO Jesse Rosen and Cleveland Orchestra Executive Director Gary Hanson are a discussion of what constitutes good leadership at an arts organization in the 21st century, and the League’s role in nurturing those orchestra leaders; orchestras’ increasingly active roles in serving their communities; and the Cleveland Orchestra’s neighborhood residencies in Gordon Square, Lakewood, and Broadway/Slavic Village. In a second interview at Ideastream.org on Tuesday, WCLV host Jacqueline Gerber speaks with Hanson and Rosen about creating strong, healthy boards at orchestras, a topic that is covered in sessions at Conference; the wide of range new music being composed for orchestras today; the active role of musicians at the Cleveland Orchestra and at other orchestras, as they take on new roles; changing trends for public participation in the arts; and Cleveland’s Severance Hall, where tonight the Cleveland Orchestra and Music Director Franz Welser-Möst will perform Richard Strauss’s opera Daphne.
