Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO) Executive Director Scott Harrison is one of an international cohort of 50 CEOs selected to participate in National Arts Strategies’ Chief Executive Program. Over the next year, he will travel to Harvard Business School and University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business to work with fellow participants united by deep community roots.
Program Director Sunny Widmann says, “We were overwhelmed by both the quality and quantity of applications to the Chief Executive Program. Together with our partners at Harvard Business School and University of Michigan, Ross School of Business, we’re thrilled to share knowledge with and learn from this incredible group of change agents in the cultural sector.”
“It is an honor to be selected for the National Arts Society’s Chief Executive Program and represent our institution, particularly because LACO was the only orchestra chosen to participate,” says Harrison. “It is an affirmation of our deepening commitment to working with the community and to forging new and diverse partnerships throughout Los Angeles.”
Support for the program comes from The Kresge Foundation, The Educational Foundation of America and The Chief Executive Fellowship Fund Honoring Ken Fischer.
