How should classical-music organizations today balance their tradition of artistic excellence while creating something that everyone can share? In his “call to action,” Clive Gillinson, Carnegie Hall’s executive and artistic director, argues for an integrated approach to serving both music and our wider communities. Gillinson’s address was delivered at the 67th National Conference of the League of American Orchestras in Dallas, Texas on June 8, 2012.
Gillinson’s address is preceded by a performance by students from the Dallas Symphony’s Young Strings program, celebrating its 20th year in 2012; and League of American Orchestras President and CEO Jesse Rosen presents the League’s Gold Baton Award to Helen DeVos for outstanding service to the orchestra field.
