Separate But Equal

Editor's Abstract

In this article, cellist Peter Sachon talks about the general trends of orchestral programming in the United States and how he feels they could be improved. He points to the separation of subscription and pops programming, and the general lack of “non-traditional” programming, which he suggests could include contemporary music, film music, musical theater, and more. Programming is certainly an important piece of the puzzle that needs to be considered when looking at the future and how we will engage our audiences. And in this article, Peter Sachon offers a compelling argument for innovative and bold programming.
