I’m delighted to report that Joe Kluger is on the case: Joe is former president of the Philadelphia Orchestra and now an arts consultant. The College has hired him to help us get our heads, arms, hearts and budget around the process whereby we’ll ramp up our arts programming, spaces and development work.
This is most welcome. Joe stopped by this morning to hear my thoughts about the subject. As a former HC rock and roller (anybody out there remember practicing the refrigerator storage room?) who also did a bit of composing and singing in the chorale, I’m a firm believer in the value of arts education and experience. Go Joe!
