The opening session of the League of American Orchestras conference is beginning right now, and it’s being live-streamed at orchestrarevolution.org. I’ve been pretty impressed with the ambitious online engagement strategy that has gone into this event. Visitors to the site can actually vote on the agenda for the session itself, deciding which questions will be discussed among the attendees. There’s also a concurrent discussion going on over on Twitter using the hashtag #orch2010, and during a couple of the on-stage interviews I’ll be sending Doug questions that people are posing online. (If you don’t have a Twitter account, you can also leave your question as a comment on this post.) If you’re a musician who ever plays or works with orchestras, I’m sure they’d love to hear from you whether or not you have any formal affiliation with the League. Check it out!
