This is the second episode of my Program Notes series, where I interview professionals working in arts and culture nonprofits from across the United States. These are dedicated pros who are actually working in the field and have their fingers on the pulse of current challenges, opportunities, and issues facing the nonprofit world and the arts and culture sector in particular. In today's episode, I spoke with Jill Jantzen, the artistic director of Salon 21 in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Salon 21 delivers traditional salon-style piano concerts in intimate settings throughout the city, delighting both longtime classical music lovers and those new to the art form. A common complaint amongst performing arts nonprofits is that it can be difficult to attract and engage new audiences, so how is Salon 21 doing it without putting modern audiences to sleep? Find out in the latest Program Notes interview below.
