Thank you to everyone who attended the August 20th Community Forum!
A full report, including a summary of ideas from the breakout discussion groups, will be posted on the website as soon as these can be compiled.
If you have further ideas to share, you can write to Orchestrate Excellence at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please send these by Monday, August 26, for inclusion in the report, although we always welcome ideas and input.
Forum participants indicated an interest in writing to the MOA Board, Governor Dayton and Mayor Rybak. While we are all passionate about the Minnesota Orchestra and want the lockout to end, letters that are clear and respectful may have greater impact.
If you were not able to attend, you can listen to the live stream recorded by The UpTake, which includes Alan Fletcher’s speech, the Q & A, live interviews, and abbreviated reports from a few of the breakout groups.
Norman Lebrecht’s blog, Slipped Disc, includes a transcript of Alan Fletcher’s speech.
