Who is the future symphony musician? What do they see, hear, think, do and say? In this session, Dr. Tanya Kalmanovitch and Anna-Christina Phillips will apply their perspective as leaders in one of the world’s foremost conservatory professional development programs to provide a snapshot of the orchestral musician of the future. Music students who graduate today are facing very real challenges that will shape their livelihood and their craft. In this session we will explore the world in which they live, the way it shapes their perceptions, and how this new generation of classical musician can engage with challenges.
