ROAD OF CREATIVITY Orchestra
The Ethnically Diverse Group of Employees (EDGE) affinity group brought a special performance to Corning's Sullivan Park this month for its Annual Meeting. Featuring the ROAD OF CREATIVITY orchestra, the meeting used music and lecture to look at diversity.
ROAD OF CREATIVITY performed a set of songs, with members of the group speaking in between to the full auditorium at Innovation Hall. The keynote speaker and orchestra leader demonstrated how diversity breeds creativity, innovation, and new opportunities by relating the experience of her musical group. She explained that her orchestra members come from different musical backgrounds, from rock to classical. What's more, the musicians have a 26-year age range between them. Playing with such diversity brings the group perspectives that they feel are essential in pushing their own creativity and methods for solving problems.
