Lucinda Carver, Senior Lecturer in Keyboard and Early Music Studies at USC’s Thornton School of Music, discusses the process and practice of programming a concert - from the traditional overture-concerto-intermission-symphony concert to more creative and modern approaches to concert programming (from budgeting and ensembles to new repertoire) that she has explored. She also discusses some novel ways to replace parts of the traditional program - say, the overture - with something else that serves the same purpose, and how to construct a concert that tells a story or takes listeners on a journey.
