New World Symphony President/CEO Howard Herring was recently interviewed for the National Endowment for the Arts’ weekly podcast ART WORKS, “which features interviews with artists, arts administrators, and creative thinkers about both the practical and visionary aspects of working in the arts.“
Entitled “Reimagining the presentation of classical music”, the half-hour podcast was recorded in March, and the host is NEA Media Producer Josephine Reed.
Howard discusses classical music in the twenty-first century, specifically NWS’ new concert formats, meant to attract and engage new audiences. He talks about the New World Center, short format concerts, WALLCAST™ concerts and Pulse events. He also touches on his own musical background, and music education in the U.S.
