Thanks to a recent tweet from Sam Bergman, I decided to comb through the Take A Friend To The Orchestra archives:

Turns out, it’s been four years since the site had a design update so I decided to put some time in over the weekend to give it a new logo, bring it into WCAG compliance, and provide a better all-around mobile experience.
But the real draw is the content, which is every bit as engaging and inspiring as before.
If anything, the pandemic provides a new perspective to so many of the contributions. Likewise for historical context.
So many of the early contributions focus on the importance of breaking down pretense and barrios to engagement. Today, these are commonplace ideas but in the early 2000’s, they were downright radical...or heresy depending on who you were talking to.
If it’s been a while since you’ve been through the archives or the entire program is new to you, set aside some time to get inspired.
