Join us on Tuesday, March 14 for a presentation by Robert Reed, executive director of the Madison Symphony Orchestra. 

Currently celebrating its 97th season, the Madison Symphony Orchestra is one of the largest and most respected performing arts organizations in Wisconsin. On June 6, Robert Reed became the new Executive Director of the Madison Symphony Orchestra (MSO). Reed will share his experience of how an African American male growing up in the inner city became the Executive Director of the MSO. Reed will also share his insights about the past, present and the future of the MSO. He will address how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the MSO and what he is doing to overcome those challenges. Reed will also speak of the challenges in addressing needed change in a nonprofit organization and how to evolve an organization that it is looking to be strong and vibrant into the future.
