Jazz at the Bistro http://news.stlpublicradio.org en Commentary: Collaboration Makes The Arts Better http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/commentary-collaboration-makes-arts-better <p>I recently joined a group of arts leaders at the Nine Network to discuss how organizations in Grand Center could collaborate more effectively. As part of the meeting, they asked us to name some of the ways collaborations have created value in the community. This question took me back to my first day of business school at Washington University, when we talked about the concept of value: how the benefits an organization produces are greater than the costs of the organization. It is a classic case of one plus one equals three.</p> Mon, 21 Jul 2014 02:14:38 +0000 Gene Dobbs Bradford 38066 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org Commentary: Collaboration Makes The Arts Better Jazz St. Louis Remembers MAXJAZZ Founder Rich McDonnell In Concert At Jazz At The Bistro http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/jazz-st-louis-remembers-maxjazz-founder-rich-mcdonnell-concert-jazz-bistro <p>On Sunday, May 25, Jazz at the Bistro will have a lineup of performers worthy of the man everyone is gathering to honor: Richard McDonnell.</p><p>In addition to founding St. Louis-based independent record label MAXJAZZ, McDonnell was one of the original board members of Jazz St. Louis.</p><p>The night before he died this past February, Richard McDonnell spent the evening doing what he loved most, said his son Clayton McDonnell.
