Four Steps to an Open Communications Culture for Orchestras

Webinar Monday, December 9, 2019, 1:00pm EST

How we engage with colleagues serves as one of our biggest assets for success and directly influences our ability to accomplish our work. But what happens when, behind the scenes and off the stage, establishing and sustaining harmonious connections between people feels difficult, or even impossible?

In this one-hour webinar, Sonja Thoms, Senior Director of Operations and Orchestra Manager at the Nashville Symphony, tackles that question with key observations, tools, and tactics to help establish relationships between staff and musicians that are full of openness and trust. Register for this webinar to obtain practical information that you can start applying immediately to support your orchestra’s communications culture.
