We want to teach and inspire the next generation about the joys of symphony.

Imagine Symphony Live is about celebrating the culture of live orchestral music making, especially for communities across the United States. Every year, millions of eager listeners visit local community symphonies to enjoy the recreation of timeless art, with each experience remaining 100% unique for the listeners and players in the room each time. There’s a raw beauty in the performance of live music and the presence of mind it requires from the participants on both sides of the stage. It can be rejuvenating, healing, and a community support system to help people stay connected and continue to grow. Live music provides a welcome sense of immediate and satisfying realness to our lives.
