We believe that participation in the arts deepens cultural awareness and empathy, develops openness, and enhances personal growth. We are committed to creating and contributing to a community in which every member’s voice is valued and respected. We recognize that diversity and inclusion are connected to our mission and are critical in creating and sustaining welcoming and open artistic spaces for our leadership, musicians, patrons, volunteers, and community members.

We work with the understanding that the definition of diversity is constantly evolving. Our current definition of diversity includes race, color, nationality, ethnicity, class, religion, disability, age, sex, gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation.
