Location: State Ballroom, Fourth Floor

How can orchestras balance the imperative to include under-represented artistic voices—composers, soloists, and conductors—with perceived or demonstrated competing preferences of core audiences? We will look at experiences of a few orchestras on this journey and delve into interactive discussions about how to navigate this tension.

Speakers: Andrés Ballesteros, composer / educator; Jeri Lynn Johnson, founder and artistic director, Black Pearl Chamber Orchestra; Anna Kuwabara, executive director, Albany Symphony; Mark Volpe, managing director, Boston Symphony Orchestra
