Our team really enjoyed working with the musicians, staff and board of the Richmond Symphony on their strategic plan last year, and I absolutely love our collaboration with Maestro Steven Smith on the FIRST CHAIR program. So, it should come as no surprise that I'm happy to be hanging out with the Richmond Symphony team again -- this time, facilitating some longer range visioning work. Over a couple of sessions this winter, we'll explore the ways in which we anticipate Richmond will continue to grow and change as we move toward 2020. And we'll look at the ways in which cultural organizations around the world are transforming. Through those filters, we'll work to craft a vision (not a vision statement, but an asipration) for Richmond's symphony.
