COVID-19 has impacted the performing arts drastically. It is so sad to see major opera companies, symphonies, theaters, canceling their entire seasons. Even though this has been heartbreaking, I believe that in the long run performing arts will come back even stronger.
The arts in general should serve as a reflection of the world and beyond. In America, it should strive towards more diversity and collaboration. Arts organizations must build a strong relationship with communities to be able to reach sustainability. Acquiring the right tools to communicate and inspire will result in a meaningful reconstruction of the arts in the US.
This made me realize the importance of the arts. This is why I decided to pursue my MBA. I would like to combine my MBA knowledge to restructure the arts culture in the US.
I never thought that I would play a concert for an empty hall and have the entire audience online.
This is the best time to reshape the arts scene in this country. I see that people are so hungry for the arts and want to do all they can to bring it back.
I would start with the youth. The meaning of the arts, its depth and understanding, once distilled in a young person serves as a gateway to sustainable success.
