Please join us for a roundtable discussion with five distinguished panelists as we discuss their personal experiences in the classical music industry - as well as actionable ways in which small arts organizations can be a force for anti-racism in the classical world from the ground up. The discussion will be followed by an audience Q&A via chat.
