I recently came across this blog post at the New England Conservatory’s website. It is an idealistic look at how the orchestras should use the case of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra to redefine the musician’s role and through that, the role of the orchestra. I support the idea to redefine the musician’s role and set of skills to succeed in “real life” while still doing work that is relevant and important, although one would have to look at how that changes the economics of it. Either way, makes a good reading and would make a good discussion point.
