Every issue of Symphony, the League’s quarterly magazine, reports on the critical issues, trends, personalities, and developments of the orchestra world. What’s in the latest edition of Symphony, available now in print and online? We report on how one orchestra is working to build diversity in what is surely every orchestra’s most visible position: on the conductor’s podium. We examine the multiple approaches smaller-budget orchestras are taking to commission new works from today’s composers, and we go behind the scenes at the League’s Essentials of Orchestra Management program, which is developing the next generation of orchestra professionals. Also in this issue: emerging classical artists cite the inspirational teachers who not only gave lessons in technique but provided lifelong lessons in the art of music. The Guide to Emerging Artists provides an overview of the composers, conductors, ensembles, and soloists who are building their careers right now.
