Thirty-two professionals from across the country will take part in the League of American Orchestras’ ten-day Essentials of Orchestra Management program in Los Angeles, July 18-27. The immersive seminar offers participants the opportunity to learn from a faculty of field leaders as they explore the fundamentals of orchestra management and the new values, roles, and practices that are emerging as orchestras evolve. Essentials participants were selected in a competitive process. Since its inception in 2000, over 400 professionals have participated in Essentials, including many who now hold key leadership positions in orchestras. Hosted by the University of Southern California (USC) Thornton School of Music, the seminar is presented in association with the USC Arts Leadership Program (ARTL), the Association of California Symphony Orchestras, and the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
