The Weight of the World: Scott Showalter, CEO Oregon Symphony
Open Account podcast: Season 4, Episode 2
Thirty years ago, Scott Showalter wanted to be a classical pianist. But when he realized that despite his skill, life as a working artist wasn’t financially viable, he left music to get an MBA—a decision that decades later led him back to music, as CEO of the Oregon Symphony. Now he's in the position of dealing with the same questions he faced as an artist. The only difference: this time his answer doesn't just affect him, but 100s of people, including musicians, whose future depends on his decisions...
Hit play to listen to the full episode of Open Account as Scott shares his story of designing a new way for people to interact with one another.
