Get with the Program! New Approaches in Concert Programming

This session will explore ways to create effective concert programs that move beyond the period-based, style-based or straightforward thematic approaches. Examples of types of programming we will explore: ensemble selected, narratives, arch form, arbitrary restriction, progressive venue, outside text-based, audience participation, and other methods that create effective and artistic concert programs. There will be time for sharing of effective programming approaches and philosophies, so bring an example of a particularly effective program you have tried in concert or an idea you have always wanted to try.
