As a graduate of The Curtis Institute of Music and Founder/Executive Director of Play On Philly, Stanford Thompson understands the importance of technical mastery and musical knowledge while adding value to diverse communities of people. Like mastering instrumental technique and ensemble collaboration, building relationships with those around you takes just as much practice as scales and etudes. In today’s challenging times, many of us have a more difficult time defining and pursuing our future aspirations. Stanford will share his inspiring story and unpack several ideas that can help impact the lives of those around you.
Friday Webinars at Wharton Arts is a series dedicated to making authentic connections between art and life through the sharing of stories, expertise, and creations by guest artists of varied disciplines. The series is curated and hosted by Artistic Director and Principal Conductor Helen H. Cha-Pyo.
