Playing Together

Thousands of people across Corporate America have heard Boris Brott's interactive presentation - he draws comparisons between business organizations and symphony orchestras. Both have common goals, each must perform in harmony to achieve those goals, and each continually strives for perfection. Often, both attempt to be innovative and creative.

Boris draws out the juxtaposition of teamwork and leadership; the need for creativity within an organization, the joy of communication and the achievement of success. All are explored through the medium of music.

During the 75-minute presentation, the analogies are enhanced with slides and video. The audience hears of Beethoven's struggle, his quest for perfection...brief passages from some of Beethoven's best known works. Then, it's time to play together...

Boris instructs the audience to reach under their chairs where they will find a tonebar - a musical instrument with a mallet. The audience has been divided into five specific notes. After "rehearsing" and enjoying the levity and excitement, the audience is prepared to play Beethoven's Ode to Joy. Boris turns to the video screen, gives a signal, and a full symphony orchestra begins to play. At the appropriate point, he turns to the audience and "conducts" them in this informative, educational, and fun-filled presentation. The audience is thrilled to be playing a significant part and to make music under the direction of a symphony conductor. Audiences and corporate executives find it a memorable and unique presentation.
