Covering the bases

Minneapolis, Minnesota

The website of MusicalAmerica carries an account of the meeting held in Washington last Thursday among members of the Presidential Transition Team and the CEOs of 20 arts service organizations. Bill Ivey, former chair of the National Endowment for the Arts, convened the gathering whose attendees included people from Opera America, Dance/USA, Chorus America, League of American Orchestras, Association of Art Museum Directors, Theatre Communications Group, and Meet The Composer, among others. Interestingly – and encouragingly – the agenda was not all about obtaining more money for the arts!
