Posted on: April 27, 2018

“As the orchestral world strives for greater diversity among musicians, a variety of programs to support musicians of color, who face multiple challenges on their path to an orchestral seat, have been explored,” writes A Tempo radio host Rachel Katz at WWFM (Princeton, NJ) on Saturday (4/21). “Recently, three organizations that have been tackling some of these issues—The Sphinx Organization, The League of American Orchestras, and the New World Symphony—have brought their expertise and experience together, joining in a partnership to launch the National Alliance for Audition Support.” Katz discusses the background, scope, and future of the National Alliance for Audition Support with Sphinx Organization President and Artistic Director Afa Dworkin, League of American Orchestras President and CEO Jesse Rosen, and New World Symphony President Howard Herring beginning at the 3-minute mark.
