The Council for Living Music
Is an organization whose purpose is to enhance the public’s recognition of the art of live music and live musical performance in all its magnificent forms. We are dedicated to increasing public awareness and appreciation of various forms of musical expression, preserving historic and contemporary musical forms and encouraging the development of new varieties of musical expression that evolve through live performance.
The passion invoked by the sound created by flesh-and-blood musicians playing actual musical instruments is an essential part of the human experience, transcending borders and cultures. Tragically, many performing arts venues and producers are seeking to substitute recordings for live music. The Council for Living Music is working to restore and preserve live music, support the musicians whose art and skills sustain it, and champion music education, study and research. We have enough processed sound in our culture; let’s keep musical performances LIVE!
