Free League webinar: “Musicians’ Voices: Adversity and Innovation in the Time of COVID”

Posted on: March 19, 2021

On Wednesday, March 24, the League of American Orchestras and Classical Movements will co-present “Musicians’ Voices: Adversity and Innovation in the Time of COVID,” a webinar in which five orchestra musicians will discuss topics centered around the lifelong commitment to making music in person and in isolation. The webinar is part of Classical Movements’ “Musician’s Perspective” series and is free for League members and non-members. As the country begins to emerge from a pandemic that has changed our lives and our relationship with technology, panelists will address the question of what we will take with us, and what we will leave behind. The 90-minute discussion will be moderated by Alex Laing, principal clarinet at The Phoenix Symphony, with panelists Kristen Bruya, principal bass, Minnesota Orchestra; Jauvon Gilliam, principal timpani, National Symphony Orchestra; David Kim, concertmaster, Philadelphia Orchestra; Lauren Roth, concertmaster, Tucson Symphony Orchestra and faculty member, Prague Summer Nights; and Amanda Stewart, associate principal trombone, St. Louis Symphony Orchestra. Neeta Helms, president of Classical Movements, will provide the preface and introduction.

“Musicians’ Voices: Adversity and Innovation in the Time of COVID” takes place on Wednesday, March 24 at 3:00 pm Eastern/12:00 pm Pacific. The webinar is free of charge. Learn more here. Contact League Member Services at member@americanorchestras.org with questions.
