Over these past weeks, the League and our orchestra members have worked diligently in tandem to address a rapidly-changing world, and in doing so reminded us of a long-standing and important reality – we are stronger together!
In the spirit of this cooperative approach, the League is launching Stronger Together: League Giving Days 2020, a philanthropic campaign to support the League’s critical work of leading the orchestra community and serving as a nexus of knowledge and innovation, advocacy, and leadership advancement.
Our ability to play this essential role on behalf of our members and the communities they serve is only possible through your generosity. Your gift today supports our increasing commitment to add value to League membership and to provide essential new resources at no additional cost.
In keeping with the Stronger Together theme, we have prioritized the idea of building a philanthropic community. No matter the size of your gift, you are essential as we strive to reach our 750-donor goal.
Your support is more important now than ever, enabling the League to continue to lead our collective charge, while writing the playbook for how to navigate the immediate challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
Together, we are making a difference through:
- Communications: Thousands of people in orchestras big and small, from CEO’s to public relations directors to trustees and volunteers, have connected through the League’s online discussion platforms and peer-to-peer calls (in the last eight weeks 690 individuals from over 300 organizations participated in 20 peer-to-peer calls).
- Advocacy and Support: Members from all 50 states raised their voices to reach over 400 members of Congress in support of federal relief for orchestras.
- Information and Resources: As part of the League’s steadfast commitment to the orchestra industry, a growing list of COVID-19 resources and information can be found here and the National Conference is being presented online to members, at no fee.
- Music: Orchestras from A-Z have filled the internet with music, sharing their artistry with the world even while closed out of their halls. Since launching symphonyspot.org on April 14, over 3,800 users in 41 countries have tuned in to listen to orchestral music.
