Welcome to the Program Notes Series!
This is the first in what I hope will become a regular series I’m calling ‘Program Notes’, wherein I talk with leaders in the arts and culture nonprofit world to discuss pressing issues, current events, and best practices. For the first edition of ‘Program Notes’, I spoke with Alek Peugh, the Executive Director of the Idaho Falls Symphony Orchestra, about her take on millennials at the orchestra, audience engagement, and the future of orchestral music.
We’ve covered some hot (and sometimes controversial) topics here, gotten Alek’s take on garnering the ever-elusive support of younger audiences, and unpacked where she sees the industry heading in the years ahead.
Press play now and check it out. Then be sure to leave me and Alek a comment with YOUR thoughts on audience engagement, millennials, and orchestra!
