Partnering to Make Music with Diverse Communities
Orchestras are reaching new audiences in unexpected ways, from collaborating with community service and educational organizations to redefining the concert experience through the use of technology.
Contributing to Strong, Healthy Communities
Orchestras are a magnet for business, investment, and tourism, helping to revitalize neighborhoods and heal communities during times of adversity.
Engaging Participants in Lifelong Learning
Studies increasingly show that creating, performing, and responding to music improves students’ success in school, work, and life. Whether a pre-schooler or senior, playing in an orchestra fosters discipline and teamwork, as well as individual skill and expression.
Inspiring Listeners and Bridging Differences through Music
Orchestral music is a living, creative art form that draws on musicians from all genres and artists from all disciplines. A growing body of new work can be a catalyst for important conversations.
The Orchestra Story Bank is made possible, in part, thanks to a generous grant from the Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation.
