Leaders

To be an artist is one thing, but to lead groups of other artists is a fine art in and of itself. Spark gets an inside look into the hectic and enriching lives of extraordinary arts administrators.

Try to keep up with the Oakland East Bay Symphony's Michael Morgan -- from middle school visits and young musician tutorials to symphony and opera rehearsals.

Then, be inspired by Oberlin Dance Company's Brenda Way, who in the three decades since she founded ODC has directed her dancers and staff to accomplish more than they ever dreamed possible.

Finally, sit in as the founder of Palo Alto's TheatreWorks, Robert Kelley, directs a rehearsal of "Proof."
