Association of British Orchestras


The ABO champions British orchestras and the wider membership, raising their profile and influence with key stakeholders and the British public, through political engagement, the media, social networks and stakeholder bulletins. We track and influence the development of cultural policy from the European Union, UK government, local government and devolved administrations, and advocate the value of public and private investment in the orchestral sector.
