Orchestras Live has been evolving for more than 50 years. We believe that orchestras are for everyone and that live orchestral music has the power to inspire people for a lifetime. We are committed to engaging people of all ages and backgrounds, creating work that harnesses the transformative power of orchestral music to inspire, bring joy and support wellbeing.

We are a national charity and producing organisation. We work with local and regional partners in areas of the country which have suffered under-investment for many years, particularly non-metropolitan, rural and coastal parts of England. Our projects can take place in schools, care homes, prisons, arts venues, museums, outdoors and online. Our programme of activity involves work in the areas of community development, health and wellbeing, children and young people and workforce development.

Orchestras Live has established itself as an influential leader in the orchestral sector, alive to innovations and their potential to drive positive change. We are prepared to break the mould and explore new ideas or practices – artistic, technological, societal, environmental, and organisational. In our work with orchestras, promoters and local partners we seek to break down barriers not only in the communities where we work, but within our own institutions and organisations, to ensure access for all, whatever their circumstances.  

We believe that our work stands the best chance of success when it is founded on a listening culture; designed through consultation and collaboration with the varied people and communities with whom we engage. We want this diversity to be reflected in our Board and staff team in order to be more representative of modern Britain.
