A career in the arts: performing and managing

with Crispin Woodhead, CEO – Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment

Not all orchestras are the same – The OAE’s catchy and much-discussed, slightly controversial marketing phrase will be the starting point for a lively afternoon learning about managing a world-renowned orchestra and how varied a career in arts management can be. This session will also offer the chance for performers to ask Crispin for early-career advice – how is it possible for young conductors, soloists and other performers to find their place in the increasingly competitive market-place?

TICKETS: Contact Maggie Faultless, Director of Performance and co-leader of OAE for further details. E: This class is open to the public
