MET Orchestra Musicians in the Community

The MET Orchestra Musicians are committed to deepening the musical awareness of the New York public and forging diverse connections between MET Orchestra Musicians and music lovers around the world through community engagement, education, and world-class performance.

Our goals

  • Provide diverse musical experiences to the underserved and affirm diversity in New York’s musical culture

  • Foster civic pride and provide focal community experiences by performing in greater New York's accessible public places, and non-traditional venues beyond Lincoln Center

  • Develop educational opportunities for future musicians and audiences alike

  • Support the ordinary and necessary expenses related to the preservation of the MET Orchestra Musicians


Recognizing a need for greater involvement in the community, the MET Orchestra Musicians are an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
