This fall I'll be entering a program called the Arts Leadership Program at my school. Its designed to educate musicians in other areas of the music and entertainment industry. (Note: it is not a business oriented program) The students in the program will have internships throughout the community; anything ranging from working at the local classical radio station to Artistic Administration with the Rochester Philharmonic. A major concern of this program is audience education and outreach. My questions for all of you are: #1 - Are there any other programs of this similar nature throughout the U.S.? #2 - What is your opinion on audience outreach and education? (and what has worked for you in the past?) Many thanks.
