How and why are orchestras moving musical content to digital platforms—and creating entirely new experiences for virtual audiences? Is this a short-term response or the future of our field? How can we create compelling content to compete with endless options for online entertainment just a click away? How do we keep focused on our mission, our audiences, and our quests for greater equity and accessibility when our primary means of contact are electronic?

In this 90-minute webinar from the League of American Orchestras, we’ll investigate the many aspects of navigating this new, unfamiliar and exciting ecosystem: strategic, creative, repertoire, technical, legal, marketing, patron experience, and our organizational cultures, among other considerations.
