About Us

The San Francisco Symphony’s American Orchestra Forum brings together voices from diverse cultural perspectives and the general public to explore the 21st-century American orchestra. Topics include how orchestras connect with their communities; how orchestras balance creativity and innovation with artistic traditions and practices; and what orchestras can learn about changing audience patterns and engagement strategies from looking outside their own industry.

Chapter Four: The World Has Changed

Chapter Three: Considering Technology

No conversation about music—-about any art form, for that matter—-gets very far these days without addressing the impact, potential and pitfalls of technology. From high-definition broadcasts of live performances, to an audience tuned in to Facebook, Twitter and other social media, classical music must find its place in an increasingly digital community. This podcast was developed from our October 23, 2011 public Forum.

Chapter Two: Personal Stories

The second chapter in our podcast series is about personal stories, those intimate connections between a student and a teacher that, like a pebble in a pond, send waves radiating outward. Few stories are more compelling or influential than that of Gustavo Dudamel, the Venezuelan-born conductor—and now Music Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic—-who found his own pebble-in-the-pond experience in his home country’s visionary music education and social program, El Sistema.
