Philadelphia Inquirer on DeVos Institute's work with Philadelphia Orchestra

The Philadelphia Inquirer, July 03, 2016

"One of the nation's top arts consultants says that the Philadelphia Orchestra has accomplished much since exiting bankruptcy - but warns that it has not secured the support necessary to ensure its future ... The findings come after six months of looking under the orchestra's hood by Michael M. Kaiser, chairman of the DeVos Institute of Arts Management at the University of Maryland and former president of the Kennedy Center in Washington. Kaiser conducted more than 100 interviews with orchestra staff, board, donors, musicians, and interested others, and offers observations and advice on a shrinking audience and a funding base that has not kept pace with expenses."

'From our perspective,' said Brett Egan, president of the DeVos Institute of Arts Management at the University of Maryland, which advises museums on best practices, 'it’s the leading institution in the country representing the voice, traditions and aspirations of the Arab-American community.'"
