REINVENTING THE CHAMBER MUSIC ENSEMBLE
As audience demographics change and technology touches the ways in which people experience art, chamber ensembles are seeking new ways to engage audiences. Core Ensemble members discuss their vision of chamber works of the future, citing examples from their own repertoire such as Of Ebony Embers, Tres Vidas and The Silken Phoenix. Discussion will center on the process of creating the new genre of chamber music theatre as well as social and cultural issues explored in each work.
THE BUSINESS OF ART
A business plan for performing artists or anyone else interested in the “nuts and bolts” of how an arts organization runs. Invaluable as a career development tool, this seminar is a must for anyone planning a profession in the performing arts or arts management. Issues such as marketing, publicity, fundraising, grant-writing, non-profit status/incorporation and board development will be discussed.
