Creating a level playing field for BIPOC classical musicians in the United States.
Advancing Racial Equity through Collaboration
Musicians of color make up less than 15%* of orchestral musicians. Equity Arc levels the playing field by developing new pathways that empower BIPOC instrumentalists to pursue their passions.
We work collectively with partners at all stages of the journey, from early studies to conservatory to career, to transform classical music from within.
Join the national movement. Our members represent early study programs, summer festivals, conservatories, orchestras, and other classical music organizations.
Discover opportunities and find your path in classical music.
