“I think that we really try to program an orchestra for the community, not to be elitist but to have programming that appeals to diverse audiences,” says Symphony Nova Scotia’s CEO Chris Wilkinson. “What makes me really happy is if I’m in the lobby and it’s a whole different audience. We have our core classical audience and then we have people who come in for shows like Video Games Live or Thorgy and the Thorchestra.” And by pushing boundaries with shows like Thorgy’s—which the symphony created with the RuPaul’s Drag Race star—this is an orchestra that does just that.
