It pains me to link to a blog post on Slipped Disc, but I will. There aren’t enough women running orchestras in the UK. That amazes me. I think it needs to change.
It’s not all good news though. I bite my lip when I read this in the Sydney Herald:
As with all orchestral music, bringing down the average age in the concert hall is also a prime focus.
“It’s about meeting millennials and Gen Y audiences where they are instead of maybe where their parents were,” she says.
Most of the UK’s orchestras are run by men. That amazes me. I think it needs to change.
Pro-tip, Emma. Don’t call them ‘millennials’. They hate that.
