about searching for ways to innovate and to bring the joy of music to
ever wider audiences. Innovation and artistic achievement require

effort, and the results inform the character of the institution. Sustainable financial health is essential if we are to pass to future
generations the extraordinary gift of music we enjoy today.

do so from a position of responsible fiscal stewardship. With your
help, we can ensure that each step forward is sustainable for decades to
