The article comes on the tail of Conn-Selmer’s 2nd annual dealer leadership event that was held in Cleveland, Ohio. Cleveland is the home of Conn-Selmer’s string division and its Eastlake brass plant, so it was a fitting location for dealers to view first-hand the investments that have made in keeping musical instrument manufacturing competitive in the US.
The dealer event included tours of the Eastlake brass facility; leadership, product, and financial training from members of the Conn-Selmer executive team; employee development training from the Disney Institute; a special education roundtable; and special evening receptions at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Severance Hall, the home of the Cleveland Orchestra.
