During the course of COVID-19, we have seen the need for real change within our organization: the obvious pivot to online and socially-distanced learning, but also prioritizing accessibility and inclusivity, expanding the diversity of composers we learn from, and working to provide more global learning opportunities.
We are striving to make these changes. We’ve implemented a Guest Artist Series that exposes our students to professionals across the globe, we’re incorporating into our repertoire contemporary music from diverse composers, and we’re continuing to expand our community outreach programs and provide student scholarships.
These necessary initiatives are the future of a modern orchestra.
While our Online Auction would typically support these initiatives, we recognize the financial strain on our local businesses, and have reimagined our spring fundraiser.
This 57th season, our mosaic artwork will be a memento of overcoming hurdles and continuing to creating music together, even from afar. We invite you to join us in making it the most colorful, eye-catching work of art!
