Good tips for any musician really... BBC News - Esa-Pekka Salonen: 10 tips to becoming a conductor Interview with LA Phil CEO Deborah Borda: Building a Great Orchestra by Laurie Niles When Deborah Borda took her job as Chief Executive Officer of the Los Angeles Philharmonic back in January 2000, she found near-empty halls at concerts; an unhappy board; financial problems aplenty, and a still-unbuilt Disney Hall. What kind of magic happened, between then and now, that transformed the Los Angeles Philharmonic into the success it is, just 13 years later?

Gustavo Dudamel, who replaced Esa-Pekka Salonen as Music Director five years ago, routinely garners high praise from musicians and critics the world over.
