The League of American Orchestras serves as a thought leader, promoting the ideas and ideals that will help orchestras adapt and thrive in the future—among them, artistic vibrancy, healthy cultures, civic engagement, racial equity, and social justice.
Join us in envisioning and creating a vibrant future for the orchestra field by exploring a specially curated collection of resources and articles that are designed to inspire and provoke thought and action.
This collection will change periodically and feature guest curators so be sure to check back in from time to time!
Conference 2021: Embracing a Changed World
Nearly 1,400 orchestra professionals gathered online from June 7-17 for a bold, new online Conference experience. After a year of radical change, we heard from many new voices bravely exploring what we want the future to look like and how—together—we’ll get there.
Our Conference platform will remain open to all registrants until August 2. Even if you were not able to join us live, you can register for on-demand access to the recordings and transcripts from all of the general sessions.
What follows are post-conference reflections from some of the 2021 Conference Emcees.
