For too long the beauty and power of an orchestra has existed on high, at a distance and out of reach for the everyday listener. More than an assemblage of musicians, Orchestra360 is a movement that unites musical talent with those who share, seek, and want to be moved by music. 

There is no pretense to Orchestra360. Those who claim an Orchestra360 identity lead with a care for music and the desire for the art & act of orchestra to be a means for connection and inspiration.
