A Tempo: New Diversity Initiatives for Operas and Orchestras

Orchestras and opera companies have been seeking out ways to bolster diversity and inclusion in their ranks, and A Tempo this Saturday (2/16 at 7 pm) looks at two new initiatives. Host Rachel Katz will speak with Jesse Rosen, president and CEO of the League of American Orchestras, which recently announced its Catalyst Fund, supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, that will provide grants to youth and adult orchestras to work with a consultant to create programs and strategies that promote equity, inclusion and diversity. Rachel will also interview Marc Scorca, president and CEO of Opera America, and Cerise Jacobs, president of the Charles and Cerise Jacobs Charitable Foundation, which have partnered together to launch the IDEA Opera Grant Program (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access) that will award grants to teams of composers and librettists of color to support and promote the development of new works.

Rachel Katz is the host of A Tempo which airs Saturdays at 7 pm.
