Arts Administrator Track

June 20-27, 2015

The Arts Administrator Track offers orchestra administrators a “behind-the-scenes” look at the unique Academy Week program with insights into the program’s history, funding and logistical strategies, as well as integration of both the amateur and professional musician mindsets.
