The “professional/amateur” (pro/am) movement is growing. Boomers, in particular, are eager to pick up their musical instruments, practice, get into the best shape they can, and make music. And, if they can make music with coaching from orchestra musicians, all the better!

Attendees will walk away with: 1) details about successful pro/am programs in orchestras; 2) techniques for successfully implementing pro/am programs.

Carol Bogash, vice president of education and community engagement, Baltimore Symphony Orchestra; Ron Gallman, director of education programs/youth orchestras, San Francisco Symphony; Lowell Noteboom, chair, League of American Orchestras; former board chair, The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra (and amateur cellist); Alan Shen, music director, Puget Sound Symphony Orchestra; former conductor Microsoft Orchestra
