By Memphis Symphony Orchestra Peter Abell | The X-Factors That Transform a Non-Profit Organization - Conversations That Create Change Podcast with Sam Coates My guest this week is Peter Abell, the CEO of Memphis Symphony Orchestra. I’ve heard about how much transformation MSO had undergone over the last few years. Today we’re talking about deeper reasons that push you into your interests, how to transform a struggling non-profit, the X-factors that create a significant impact, how a symphony drives the classical music within a city, how to step back and look at challenges differently, how to adjust when COVID-19 affects your organization, how to address your need for control, the feeling when you know it’s going to be hard, and more. I hope you enjoy this week’s episode.

Growing Our Family

The MSO’s immediate family extends beyond the staff, the conductor, the 36 core musicians, and the dozens of per service or extra musicians.  The Memphis Symphony Chorus began in 1965 as a group of thirty singers, directed by Maestro de Frank and rehearsed by Sarah Beth Causey. The Chorus sings with the orchestra at special concerts on pieces ranging from popular Christmas tunes to ancient requiems. Today’s Chorus is made up of 100 volunteer vocalists who perform under the direction of Music Director, Robert Moody with Dr. Lawrence Edwards as artistic director. In 1966 the symphony created the Memphis Youth Symphony Program (MYSP) which continues to serve over 250 musicians each year as an independent organization. From 1995 until 2007 Vincent Danner, who served the MSO as associate conductor, also served as conductor of the MYSP.  In 2008 James Feddeck, a graduate of the Oberlin Conservatory of Music and the University of Michigan, became the symphony’s first assistant conductor.  Stilian Kirov, associate conductor of the Memphis Symphony between 2009 and 2012, was Music Director of MYSP.  Mr. Kirov graduated from the Orchestral Conducting Program of The Juilliard School, where he studied with Maestro James DePreist. He also holds a master’s degree from Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris, where his teacher was Dominique Rouits.  Thich has sponsored the MSO and its programs since 1958.  The League’s achievements in fundraising, ticket sales, promotions, and community education programs earned it a reputation as one of the nation’s most successful symphony orchestra support groups.  The education programs it has developed for use in public schools have won national awards for excellence.
