What does it take to manage the arts and what is the nature of such a career? Arts management looks very glamourous, characterised by sophistication and refinement, offering opportunities to interact with great artists and arts lovers. It is seen as a calling, driven by passion rather than prosaic considerations such as career advancement and terms of employment, and therefore the purview of people who can indulge in such a career. Is this true? Is this the whole story?

Deborah Borda, President and Chief Executive Officer the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, one of the world's most respected arts managers, tells it like it is drawing upon her stellar career in orchestra management and revealing the art and science of leading one of the most celebrated orchestras in the world. In English.


Speaker: Deborah Borda
Deborah Borda's career has been distinguished by her creative leadership, commitment to innovation, and progressive outlook on the role of the orchestra in the 21st century. She was Executive Director of the New York Philharmonic for a decade, General Manager of the San Francisco Symphony, and President of the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and Detroit Symphony Orchestra. In Los Angeles, Borda designed an acclaimed business and curatorial plan, which restored the orchestra to robust artistic and fiscal health; oversaw the opening of Walt Disney Concert Hall and the addition of a new shell to the Hollywood Bowl, the LA Phil's summer home; expanded artistic programming at both venues; and spearheaded the appointment of Gustavo Dudamel as Music Director.

Under Borda's leadership, the LA Phil has advanced both artistic and social objectives, maintains the most active commissioning program in the USA and garnered international acclaim for interdisciplinary productions and work with new technologies. A Bennington/Royal College of Music alumnus and a former professional violist, Borda is in demand internationally as a consultant and lecturer.
