Orchestras Live has launched a new series of online conversations designed to explore new ideas that challenge the sector’s thinking and help create positive change for our audiences and workforce. Called Regenerate, the series launches on Wednesday 3 June 2020, 11am, with Digital: the new performing space, a panel discussion which goes to the very heart of music making in the current crisis, the issue of artists and ensembles having to put content on-line to try and satisfy artistic demands as a result of the current crisis.

A panel including Jess Gillam (saxophonist), John Nolan (director of Learning & Participation, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra) and Paul Carey Jones (bass-baritone, and blogger), discuss such issues as - Can we afford to keep giving our content away for free? Does the sector have the digital skills and workforce to create this content long-term? Are we finding new audiences online or are we talking to an echo chamber? Along with the wider issues of the rush to digitise content.

The event is free, just register at EventBrite.
