This Week’s Headlines

The Hub

Finale: The Hub

Starting on Thursday, December 1, head over to symphony.org to find all the news, media coverage, personnel updates, and crucial information about orchestras from The Hub. Symphony.org combines the in-depth reporting of Symphony, the League’s signature publication, with the news about everything that’s happening in the orchestra field formerly on The Hub. Symphony will become the orchestra field’s go-to source of breaking news, full-length feature articles, and more, updated every weekday—free of charge.

Launched in 2009, The Hub has served as an essential resource for orchestras, and has posted more than 25,000 individual articles about the orchestra field and the musical scene. While The Hub will no longer be updated, its encyclopedic chronicle of recent orchestra history is readily available at symphony.org, which has a robust, easy-to-use search function.

Going forward, visit symphony.org to get all the news as it happens—and be sure to sign up at symphony.org/sign-up to get Symphony in your mailbox.
