PT63: “Elevate Your Community Groups,” with Matthew Salvaggio

Today we talk with conductor Matthew Salvaggio, Music Director of the Euclid Symphony, University Heights Band, and Orchestra 19 about how we can bring our volunteer and community ensembles to a new level by collaborating with new artists and composers. We talk about rehearsing and growing these groups to lead them towards greater music and music-making together, and how you can commission new pieces and bring in guest soloists with a limited budget. Plus, how is our academic system flawed for the 21st-century student, and what can orchestras do to ensure a brighter future for all of us? All of that and more in “Elevate your Community Groups,” with Matthew Salvaggio.
