One of our organization’s priorities is to build an inclusive artist community and as such we are committed to DEI work and reimagining a new orchestral collective of today. We are proud to support The National Alliance of Audition Support (NAAS) as an Orchestra Partner. NAAS is an unprecedented national initiative to increase diversity in American orchestras. It will do so by offering Black and Latinx musicians a customized combination of mentoring, audition preparation, financial support, and audition reviews. Learn more at www.auditionalliance.org.
