Orchestras often look to smaller, younger, more flexible and innovative orchestral ensembles for inspiration. Likewise, many of these newer ensembles wish for the advantages of staff, a regular venue, legacy, and access to resources. Even with the common ground of vibrant music-making, we can all be a bit green with envy at times thinking of the advantages of both situations. So the question becomes: What can we learn from these new organizations, and what might they learn from us?
