America is brimming with extraordinary musicians and ensembles as unique as the communities they serve. Every year, almost 25 million people across the United States are touched by live orchestral performances. Against today’s backdrop of continuous change, orchestras are challenged to ask anew, why they matter, what is their role, and what is their greater purpose? How can the orchestral experience—the artistry, the art form, and the artists—create the greatest impact in today’s world?

Join us in Chicago for the League of American Orchestras 73rd National Conference as we debate and discuss the answers to these critical questions.
