Volunteer associations at six orchestras have won a 2019 Gold Book Award of Excellence from the Volunteer Council of the League of American Orchestras—and now you can check them out here. Every year, volunteers at orchestras across the U.S. and Canada create and execute projects that explore topics including audience development, community engagement, fundraising, education, and more, and then submit their projects to the League’s Volunteer Council for the Gold Book Online competition. Twenty volunteer associations entered projects to this year’s competition, and the Volunteer Council selected six for the Gold Book Award of Excellence. This year’s winning projects come from the Symphony Guild of Charlotte, Charlotte Symphony Orchestra; West Suburban Friends of Chicago Sinfonietta, Chicago Sinfonietta; Women’s Symphony League of Tyler, East Texas Symphony Orchestra; Houston Symphony League, Houston Symphony; Kansas City Symphony League, Kansas City Symphony; Waco Symphony Council, Waco Symphony Orchestra. The awards will be presented at the League’s 74th National Conference, June 3-5, 2019 in Nashville, TN. Click here to learn more about the Gold Book and the Volunteer Council.
