“There is no other activity in which forty, eighty or one hundred twenty people are doing the same thing together, with a precision of a tenth of a second, starting and finishing together” (Turkov, 1998). Although the component parts of a symphony orchestra were affected by some modifications over the last 200 years, its existence is explained as a result of gradual adaptation to the requirements of the historical, political, social, educational, and cultural changes. Assuming that, the symphony orchestra is a cultural service providing organization, and a living organism, in constant interaction with the environment, being subject to internal and external pressures, which are the characteristics of their current management in order to maximize the satisfaction of all its stakeholders? The threats that generate an impact upon the symphony orchestra come mostly from outside, for example the demographic changes, the musical educational background of the population, the financing methods, global megatrends and the training and developing of the modern society. In the current world context, the existence of a symphony orchestra cannot represent a self-evident fact anymore, because it faces a number of challenges. A quick, effective and efficient response from its management system helps to increase its performance and to ensure a better future.
