Challenging Classical Conventions: exploring new opportunities to engage with the orchestra in the 21st century
The orchestra is changing. For centuries, its role and reach were more or less static. Today, thanks to the development of creative and inclusive educational programmes, the orchestra and its musicians are more assessable and more relevant to society than ever before. This talk will explore how composer and educationalist Paul Rissmann’s work has helped expand the range of activities the modern symphony orchestra has to offer, both on and off the concert platform.
