Co-presented with Classical Movements as part of their “Musician’s Perspective” Series

We are now beginning to slowly emerge from a pandemic that has changed our lives, our industry, and our relationship with technology forever. What have we gained? What gifts did we find? What will we take with us or leave behind?

Join us for a free 90-minute conversation with five orchestra musicians—brought to you by Classical Movements and led by moderator Alexander Laing. They’ll consider a range of topics centered around the lifelong commitment to making music, whether in person or in isolation.

Moderator: Alex Laing, Principal Clarinet, The Phoenix Symphony

Musicians: 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, Prague Summer Nights; Amanda Stewart, Associate Principal Trombone, St. Louis Symphony Orchestra

Preface and Introduction: Neeta Helms, President, Classical Movements
