Orchestras Canada is delighted to open up registration for the 2015 National Orchestras Meetings, taking place in Vancouver, BC from June 4-6, 2015. We’ll be hosted by the VSO School of Music and the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, and this year’s program is of particular interest to orchestra managers and artistic/operations personnel. Guest speakers include Donald Thulean, Susan Howlett, David Sulkin O.B.E., and The New Yorker’s Alex Ross – with more to come! The event begins with peer group meetings, and we’ve scheduled lots of time for learning and informal networking.
Early bird pricing is available until March 31. As well, we’ve introduced a special rate for multiple registrants from the same member organization.
Thanks to the Canada Council for the Arts, OC has travel bursaries available for people from orchestras with annual revenues under $2 million, and the first deadline for consideration of requests is February 6. Application materials are available here.
We’ve reserved a block of rooms at the Sheraton Wall Centre at a highly competitive rate. You can find out more (and book on-line) here.
