For the first time, Essentials of Orchestra Management will be held in Los Angeles, hosted by USC’s Arts Leadership program at the USC Thornton School of Music. This new partnership allows the League of American Orchestras to draw upon some of the most innovative voices currently working on the West Coast.
The League, in association with USC’s Arts Leadership program (ARTL), will present the seminar. The immersive 10-day seminar, from July 7-16, 2015, will be hosted by the USC Thornton School of Music. San Francisco Symphony executive director Brent Assink and The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts president Deborah Rutter will continue to serve as seminar co-directors in consultation with Kenneth Foster, director of USC’s Arts Leadership program.
