About Us

The Orchestra of the Americas is a world-class symphony orchestra of gifted young musicians, ages 18 to 30, representing 25 countries in the Western Hemisphere. With more than 5,000 musicians across North and South America entering the audition process each year, the 80-member ensemble ranks among the most competitive music platforms in the world. The Orchestra’s Mission is to empower rising musical leaders to transform lives across the Americas and beyond. All participants join on full scholarship to achieve the greatest caliber of artistry possible. The Season Centerpiece is a July & August residence and concert tour held each year in different regions of the world.

The Global Leaders Program, an affiliate of The Orchestra of the Americas, empowers a rising generation of change-makers in music to transform lives and communities through an innovative nine-month Executive Graduate Certificate in Social Entrepreneurship, Cultural Agency, Teaching Artistry, Civic Leadership, and Organizational Management. Led in partnership with nine top universities and think tanks, a world-class Faculty that includes two Nobel Laureates, and a network of institutional Fieldwork hosts spanning 30 countries, the Program is offered annually to a select Cohort of 35 of the most promising emerging talents from around the globe.
