About the Awards
Since 2016, 25 professional orchestra musicians from across the country have received the Ford Musician Awards for Excellence in Community Service from the League of American Orchestras.
Made possible through the generosity of Ford Motor Company Fund, the awards recognize professional musicians’ deeply impactful work outside of the concert hall, much of it virtual this year due to the pandemic.
The honorees receive their awards at the League’s National Conference, and are also featured in a session highlighting their inspiring education and community engagement work. Videos of the musicians in action are posted on the League’s website.
For a deeper look into the impact Ford musicians are making in their communities, check out these two resources: the 2017-2019 winner videos, and this article highlighting the 2017 awardees (PDF) in the League’s Symphony magazine.
