Co-hosted by the HBS Association of Southern California, Harvardwood, and the Harvard Club of Southern California:
Rockstar HBS Marketing and Leadership Professor Rohit Deshpande comes to town on Wednesday, May 10, to advise one of the brightest institutions in the music world, the LA Phil. Those of you who’ve seen the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning hit show Mozart in the Jungle may know that our very own LA Phil maestro, Gustavo Dudamel, is no-doubt the inspiration behind the lead.
Come mingle with leaders from art and business at the Sony Pictures Studio Lot in Culver City and participate in Professor Deshpande’s interactive case on Jazz at Lincoln Center. Stay for what promises to be a lively discussion afterwards on LA’s rising cultural institutions, changing leadership at the LA Phil and what that means for LA’s place on the world stage.
