I talked with Ken Selden, who conducted Gregory Vajda's piece last night at the Third Angle New Music Ensemble, and he mentioned that he will be attending the American Orchestras Summit later this week (January 26-28). Participants at the Summit will discuss all sorts of issues large and small relating to orchestras.
Ken will be blogging on the American Orchestra Summit web site. Other boggers who will be participating are Drew McManus (Mr. Adaptistration) and Joe Horowitz, orchestra scholar and producer. Joe was Artistic Director of the NEA's Music Critics Institute at Columbia University and one of my teachers when I was a fellow in the 2008 version of the institute.
