Itay Talgam's work is founded on the belief that music has the power to create community and reinforce shared values. Music embodies knowledge and innovation, individual effort and collective achievement, and offers a work-environment that is full of opportunities for excellence and self-actualization.
Making music, in whatever culture and context, concerns such issues as communication, listening, rhythm, technique, preparation, improvisation and interpretation, rehearsal and performance.
This presentation, while examining a diversity of organizational cultures, raises questions concerning collaboration in general, including the roles of conductors, composers, soloists and accompanists, thus providing stimulating insights into familiar management concerns such as leadership, teamwork, collective creativity and personal development.
