Presentation by Dr. Lisa Neher — Designing Collaborative Processes

January 10 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Lisa Neher

On the surface, collaboration seems ubiquitous in classical music. After all, it is an art form that involves many artists (composers, singers, instrumentalists, conductors) coming together to create a musical whole. But if we dig a little deeper how collaborative, ARE our processes of working together? How do we communicate our artistic visions and desires, and how do we respond to the needs of others? All too often, our art form leaves little time or space for true collaboration. Rather, each musician becomes responsible for their highly specialized area of creation and then must “stay in their lane.” The result: good but not great performances, professional but frustrated performers, new works that get premiered and then sit on the shelf for years without a second performance. In this workshop, we’ll talk about how to use the Neher Method to design collaborative processes that serve the artistic needs of all parties, fostering co-ownership of projects and equal “buy-in” from composers and performers alike.
