GET TO KNOW JAMES BURTON, DIRECTOR OF ORCHESTRAL ACTIVITIES
Meet CFA’s Director of Orchestral Activities, James Burton of the Boston Symphony Orchestra! Learn about his role at Boston Symphony Orchestra, what led to his love of music, and why he thinks being part of an orchestra is so special. “It’s food for the soul, and it’s an education for the heart and a challenge for the intellect. I think as an orchestral musician you are constantly being challenged to listen and take part in something that you cannot do by yourself.”

Join us throughout the year for concerts, talks, special events, and more as we commemorate this extraordinary milestone and look ahead to what’s next!
