2022 - New Orleans

The lack of diversity and representation in classical music programming is a constantly perpetuated issue for two main reasons. There is a limited number of published scores available for programming and there are a limited number or recordings available for broadcast. In this session, a panel of leaders in Classical music and media will discuss the innovative ways they are working to address this pervasive issue. Special recorded video presentation by Lara Downes.
