Commit to Local Action!

Today is the second of my three Wednesday posts featuring content from the League’s website which you might not know even existed. For example, did you know that we have two amazing staff members who work full-time in D.C. to advocate for music education and American orchestras? One of the many initiatives they have been working on is the statement of common cause, "Orchestras Support In-School Music Education,” and I want to take a moment to highlight this area of our website.

The statement of common cause was drafted with input from more than 50 orchestras and reflects a collective opportunity for all orchestras to take individual, community-specific action to improve access to music education in schools nationwide. Click here to download the pdf.

If you will be in Chicago for the conference, and you are interested in the topic of Music in Our Schools and in Our Future, you might want to check out the Toolbox session on June 10.
