Orchestras in the 21st Century
In this initiative, in a partnership with the D. Luís I Foundation, the Cascais and Oeiras Chamber Orchestra invites many speakers to discuss which is the place for orchestras (and other institutions within classical music) in the current social, economical and cultural context. Issues related to raising more public and private funding, ways and means of raising the public of all ages, the role of institutions in education, the use of new technologies in the dissemination of scholarly music, and the specific aspects concerning the management of an institution of this nature.
15 - 18 June – Centro Cultural de Cascais, Auditório - Av. Rei Humberto II de Itália, Cascais
