In this episode of Change It Up Radio, Nancy Laturno joins me to talk about finding resilience in the face of adversity and the healing power of music.

Nancy is the CEO of Mainly Mozart, whose famed festival boasts top-level players from the world’s greatest orchestras including the New York Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, Cleveland Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Israel Philharmonic, and dozens more.

For over 30 years, the Mainly Mozart All-Star Orchestra has been home to the largest gathering of Concertmasters and Principal Players in the United States, but when the COVID-19 pandemic hit and quarantine protocols were put in place, they quickly had to learn how to adapt to all of these new changes.

Nancy shares how rather than taking a hiatus when all of the orchestras in the world were sitting quiet, Mainly Mozart found a way to keep the music alive and get these sidelined artists back on stage, and they made history as the first arts organization to perform live classical music in front of live audiences since quarantine began.
