The League is a nexus of research, analysis and action on the challenges and opportunities orchestras face as not-for-profit arts organizations. It fosters excellence in governance, musicianship and management through an extensive array of leadership development programs. It partners with orchestras in enhancing their engagement with audiences and communities from our great metropolitan areas to the smallest, most remote rural outposts. It provides timely information on orchestral news and activities to music lovers everywhere. And it asserts to our leaders, legislators and fellow citizens that the United States depends on orchestral performance along with its sister creative arts to continue as a civilized society and a great nation.
