American Music Festivals is a nonprofit organization promoting cultural exchange and celebrating the beauty and power of orchestral music! Committed to artistic excellence, our collaborative concerts bring people together, allowing ensembles to share their talents with diverse audiences. From the world's major stages to community events directed at outreach and education, our programs are often accompanied by humanitarian efforts and international goodwill.
American Music Festivals highlights repertoire and artists representative of the American musical experience alongside a variety of classical and folk traditions. We embrace technology, participate in interdisciplinary programming, and engage in creative entrepreneurship to help preserve and sustain our symphonic heritage.
American Music Festivals realizes its mission on three fronts:
Presenting concerts by the Lincolnwood Chamber Orchestra, Chicago, IL
Operating the Orchestra of the Hawaiian Islands in Honolulu, HI
Engaging in programs of international cultural exchange
