EBU Radio Members manage over 75 music ensembles (symphony orchestras, big bands, choruses, children’s choirs, folk ensembles, string quartets, etc.), on which they spend more than €500 million, making them the world’s biggest employers of musicans (EBU website devoted to orchestras).
Over 50 delegates, radio orchestra managers and music programme directors, met at the new Danish Radio-Television Media Centre in Copenhagen on 10-11 November 2011, where they admired the new concert hall designed by Jean Nouvel.
The seminar provided participants with an opportunity to exchange their experiences in orchestra management and to discuss the current role of music ensembles in public service radio broadcasting.
