League ​webinar: Case studies of how two orchestras are rethinking their 2020-21 season

Posted on: February 16, 2021

The orchestra field spent the summer of 2020 listening, learning, negotiating, testing, analyzing, soul searching, and innovating. The goal: laying a foundation for a viable future and creating a structure for a 2020-21 season. On Wednesday, February 17 at 3:00pm Eastern/12:00pm Pacific, the League of American Orchestras will present 2020-21: The Resiliency Season, a webinar that examines how adaptation and planning for the season led to two different experiences at two different orchestras. Leaders from the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and the Virginia Symphony Orchestra will share insights from their work and what they have learned​ so far from their revamped 2020-21 seasons. The webinar will include discussions of digital vs. in-person performances, changes to patron engagement, and how approaches to leadership have evolved. TRG Arts will moderate this webinar and will share insights from its COVID-19 Benchmark Dashboard, which can help inform strategic and campaign planning.

2020-21: The Resiliency Season takes place on Wednesday, February 17 at 3:00pm Eastern/12:00pm Pacific; a recording will be available after the live event. Learn more and register here. Contact League Member Services at member@americanorchestras.org with questions.
