American Music Festivals is a nonprofit organization celebrating the power of orchestral music! Our collaborative concert events bring people together, allowing ensembles to share their talents with diverse and often underserved audiences. From the world's major stages to community based programming directed at outreach and education, many of our programs are accompanied by humanitarian efforts and international goodwill.

Focusing on cultural exchange, American Music Festivals highlights repertoire and artists representative of the American experience alongside other classical and folk traditions. American Music Festivals engages in interdisciplinary programming, embraces technology, and believes that preserving our symphonic heritage depends upon creative entrepreneurship.
