Welcome to the new Hub

On August 1, the League announced that it will soon be launching Symphony.org, an engaging mix of news, articles, and thought leadership. This updated, mobile-friendly version of Symphony will replace The Hub and the physical version of the quarterly magazine (we’ll still print one special Conference issue).

As the League staff focuses on developing this new platform, The Hub will transition away from daily posts. Starting today and continuing until Symphony.org launches, news about the orchestra field will appear in a streamlined way, spotlighting essential headlines and information. Expect new posts every Thursday here at The Hub.
