For the busy performing artist, knowing how to keep healthy is just as important as being able to play or sing beautifully. But over-booked schedules, constant travel, and all the other demands of this crazy life have those in this business eating out of the vending machines and drive-thru’s all too often. Even though Monica’s blog is geared toward performers, I think it has a great deal of potential for arts managers as well.

Inside The Arts is fortunate to have veteran blogger and podcaster Monica Reinagel and you’ll find all of the Nutrition Diva’s articles at Inside The Arts’ homepage but in the meantime, stop by and have a look around at all the Nutrition Diva has to offer.

About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
