About

The American Chamber Philharmonic is a self-governing orchestra, seeking to revolutionize the management of American orchestras by creating an environment in which all people can have access to the best in music making from an early age. The orchestra will tackle the two major issues facing the world of classical music today: firstly, the orchestra will increase accessibility to the best in music at little to no cost to the attending public by raising the majority of its capital from donations, advertising revenue, and grants rather than relying on expensive ticket sales. Secondly, the American Chamber Philharmonic seeks to set a precedent for the creation of a larger Chamber Orchestra tradition throughout the United States. The inherently flexible nature of a chamber orchestra would allow for a higher quality artistic product without the overlying costs and organizational needs of a larger Symphony. By doing so, other communities will be able to follow suit in the creation of their own high-level chamber orchestras, offering the best in music making to their communities, and increasing public enthusiasm and support for American orchestras. As a self-governing orchestra, the American Chamber Philharmonic will be free of the limiting factors created by a management system that leaves the musicians out of decision-making processes. The autonomy of the orchestra to mold its own identity will only allow for creating a better artistic product, and the fundraising philosophy behind the organization will mean that the vast majority of the public will be able to access it.
