From Donny Osmond to musical interruptions, we certainly lived up to our Disruption theme. So how do we trump that in 2018? With the first ever conference hosted by three member orchestras, living up to our theme of Collaboration. It’s not the first time this has been our theme, with Collaboration being the topic of one of the first ABO conferences in the late 1980s. But it’s timely to look at how collaboration today can fuel sustainability in an uncertain world. And this time we want to go deep into what collaboration means. So much of what we do is based on transactional relationships. How do we shift the culture towards meaningful collaborations with our stakeholders, from musicians to choruses, audiences to broadcasters? And following on from last year’s diversity strand, what progress has been made, and collaborations forged, towards setting an agenda for change across the workforce? Cost: £15 - £420 (dinner / concert / conference tickets all available)Contact: 020 7557 6770For more information and booking form, please visit the ABO website.
