OSR: Orchestra Statistical Report READ MORE
League member orchestras that participate in the OSR survey will receive a detailed benchmarking report containing financial and operating data about peer orchestras and the opportunity to request custom analyses.
In 1970, the League of American Orchestras began to track member orchestras’ programming through its Orchestra Repertoire Report (ORR), in order to answer queries from grantmakers, journalists, musicologists, historians, and member orchestras.
With these data partnerships, the League takes orchestra data and insights to the next level, supplementing our substantial orchestra data and research work, connecting members with insights on audience behavior to help navigate the pandemic and plan for a wider reopening.
