Convincingly making the case for your orchestra’s impact and forging strategic alliances are both crucial to advancing your orchestra’s mission. Developing the right relationships and clearly communicating your orchestra’s relevance to broader civic issues is essential, from launching community development initiatives to cultivating philanthropic support; from defending your tax-exempt status to championing public music education. Now more than ever, advocacy must become a priority.
