Orchestras & Concert Halls in a Post-Pandemic World


The Stage


As public officials, managers, presenters, board members, and other decision-makers navigate complex questions of when and how to responsibly return to performance activities in venues, The Global Leaders Program (GLP), The Spanish Association of Symphony Orchestras (AEOS) & Classical:NEXT join forces to co-present — (Re)Setting The Stage — an open-enrollment webinar series exploring the future of orchestras and concert halls in a post-pandemic world. From public health to economics, from event production to communication strategy — with support from Fundación BBVA, each conversation convenes a diverse group of industry experts to engage in examining next steps for the sector in a world transformed by social distancing.
