The League of American Orchestras has posted the first round of resources, videos, and more from its 2022 National Conference, which ran June 1-3 in Los Angeles. Posts include transcripts, presentation files, personal reflections from delegates, and recordings—among them a video of conductor Thomas Wilkins delivering an inspirational address at the Conference’s Closing Session, in which he shared his unique perspectives on the importance of connecting with audiences, engaging children in orchestral music, and committing to local communities. Other videos capture sessions focusing on diversifying audiences with research and relevance; tech trends to know about and use; what a post-COVID future might look like for product development and programming; and how to adapt to a shifting philanthropic landscape. In a series of Conference Reflections, delegates who fill varying roles in the orchestra field provide their impressions of seeing colleagues in person again, stimulating sessions, key takeaways, and new ideas. These Conference materials are all available free of charge, no log-in or registration required. More resources and videos of the League’s 2022 Conference will be posted, so stay tuned.
