The Orchestra Experience - Dominic Alldis

Leadership and Collaboration

The Orchestra Experience is an interactive 90-minute event with a live orchestra that explores leadership, collaboration, listening and trust through the metaphor of music.

The participants are seated within the orchestra from where they can observe the extraordinary power of music to convey complex ideas and emotions. The session begins with a performance of an inspiring piece of symphonic music, giving the participants an opportunity to study the extraordinary interplay between the players and the pivotal role of the conductor or 'maestro'. This is followed by a series of carefully crafted exercises that facilitate an interactive discussion about the skills needed to be an expert orchestral musician, and how an orchestra mirrors a business environment.
