Symphony Magazine

List your festival in Symphony!

Each spring, Symphony magazine, the magazine of the League of American Orchestras, publishes a comprehensive listing of late spring, summer, and fall music festivals. When you submit your festival listing for inclusion in the Spring (April) 2014 issue, you make your festival visible to tens of thousands of musicians, conductors, board members, volunteers, orchestral administrative staff, orchestra subscribers, the news media, and many others. And with SymphonyOnline, the League’s free online magazine, your festival listing has the potential to reach thousands of additional readers. Don’t miss this great opportunity to promote your music festival!

Each listing includes a brief 30-word description of the festival, the names of participating artists, ensembles, and conductors, your festival locations, dates, phone/fax numbers, email, and website addresses for those looking to attend, or purchase tickets.

Click here to submit your festival information. Please submit your festival information by February 7, 2014 to be included in this year’s listing. As always, if you decide to purchase a display ad in Symphony’s Festival issue, your festival listing will be complimentary!
