Blog Contest (ARCHIVED)

What was the American Orchestra Forum blog contest?

As our season-long project came to a close, we asked for your reflections on what the future holds for the American orchestra.

  • What is the biggest challenge facing orchestras today?
  • How can American orchestras add their voices to larger cultural conversations?
  • Has the American Orchestra Forum changed the way you think about your local orchestra?

Three winners were chosen and their entries published here on the American Orchestra Forum website. Additional honorable mention posts were also published.

Entries are now closed.
