Thoughtful and artistic programming can significantly affect the success of a concert performance. This session will explore the idea of balance in concert programs in terms of keys, tempi, languages, difficulty, styles, and character. Participants are encouraged to bring potential pieces from their musical library to arrange in a meaningful order as they work in virtual groups to develop appealing programs.
