- This week on SoundNotion, we’re joined by orchestra business guru, web design hero, arts job matchmaker, best-dressed panelist, and long-time friend of the show Drew McManus.
- He stopped by to discuss the the departure of Osmo Vänskä in Minnesota and what it means for the future of the group and its fans.
- Drew rolls up his sleeves for a grizzly post-mortem following New York City Opera‘s bankruptcy filing.
- The Berlin Philharmonic leads a country-wide, one-day strike of over 100 orchestras.
- And even the stagehands are getting in on the Orchestramageddon action at Carnegie Hall. However, the brief strike has already been resolved.
- BUT WAIT – There is some good news for orchestral music this week over at Jessica Duchen‘s blog. Southbank Centre‘s The Rest is Noise Festival is going gangbusters and bringing in new audiences.
- BUT WAIT (again) – According to Bob Shingleton at On An Overgrown Path, the news is not that great and the audiences not that new.
- And lastly, don’t forget to nominate us for People’s Choice Podcast Award this week in the Cultural/Arts category. That would be very cool of you. Thanks.
