Fellow AJ Blogger Tyler Green posted an article this week where he sums up one of the leading problems with non profit management in two succinct sentences:
“The best non-profit administration is done in private, so seemlessly that no one outside senior staff and the board knows what’s really going on. That makes it all the more fascinating when a non-profit completely messes it up “
And orchestra management is no exception. This sort of conduct often gets people into more trouble than it’s worth – I like to call it “Nixonesque” behavior.
If you don’t regularly read the culture weblogs here at Arts Journal, you should take some time over the weekend and give them a read. I’ve learned more about graphic art, dance, television, pop culture, and architecture in the past year than I have in the past ten. You’ll find a list of them on the navigation bar to your right, or visit the AJ Blog Central page.
