What considerations do you make when putting together a program?


  1. Introduce yourself! Your name, your role as a musician, and your experience programming performances.
  2. What is an example of a performance you remember that had particularly effective programming, and why?
  3. What was a performance you remember that could have benefited from different programming, and how would you have changed it?
  4. What was something that surprised you the first time you had to program a performance?
  5. What are some musical/artistic considerations you think are important to make when programming a performance?
  6. What are some extramusical/logistical considerations that have come up when you’ve programmed a performance?
  7. Are there times when you think different programming styles might be more effective, and why?
  8. What is something from this #musochat that you will consider the next time you program a performance?

That’s all I’ve got for you, folks! If you have more thoughts or Qs, share them with #musochat and A9 so that we can find them easily!
