Today the curtain goes up on our new website Orchestra R/Evolution. We invite everyone who is passionate about the future of orchestras to help set the agenda for our opening session at Conference June 16 in Atlanta!

Right now you can read Doug McLennan and Eric Booth on the need for innovation and experimentation in orchestras, Mark Clague on the power of online communities, Peter Sachon on the unspoken truth about orchestras and their audiences. The site will also feature insights for orchestras from leaders in other fields-like Don Haskin of Citi Foundation on the importance of community relations.  Go to now to read the latest smart thinking about orchestras, add your thoughts, and tee-up our Conference Opening Session.

If you can’t be in Atlanta, the Opening Session will be streamed live and you can join the discussion on Twitter.

Orchestra R/Evolution is created by the League of American Orchestras and made possible by a generous grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
