Doing More About Diversity in America’s Orchestras

I have been reflect­ing on diver­sity and orches­tras lately, prompted by some work we are doing at theLeague of Amer­i­can Orches­tras and my recent par­tic­i­pa­tion in Sphin­x­Con 2013 in Detroit, which exam­ined diver­sity, inclu­sion and equity in the arts. Many of you are likely famil­iar with Aaron Dworkin,the gifted vio­lin­ist, founder and exec­u­tive direc­tor of the spon­sor­ing non-profit Sphinx Orga­ni­za­tion.
