The League of American Orchestras has moved! The move to 520 Eighth Avenue, between 36th and 37th streets in New York’s Garment District, will allow the League to benefit from a contemporary workspace that promotes collaboration among staff and improved engagement with members through up-to-date videoconferencing and digital learning capabilities. Additionally, with rents steadily increasing at the League’s former office on West 60th Street, the move will reduce yearly occupancy costs by about $250,000. The establishment of a new national headquarters is the cornerstone of a $2 million investment in member service, including a new website, digital learning capacity, and an information technology ecosystem. A major fundraising campaign, Playing Our Part: The Campaign for the League of American Orchestras, is underway with $1.4 million committed to date. The campaign was launched with a lead gift of $400,000 from League Emeritus Director Bruce Clinton of The Clinton Family Fund.

The League has a staff of 29, with two government relations personnel in Washington, D.C. It had been at its Columbus Circle location since 1999.

The phone number for the League, 212 262 5161, and email addresses remain the same, including
