Michael Albaugh

The Conductor of Collaboration

“Having worked at Jazz at Lincoln Center and now working for thePhiladelphia Orchestra, it’s nice working in these nonprofit areas because there is a deep level of concern for what I do.”

Michael Albaugh would be the first to tell you that he loves what he does for a living, and what’s not to love? As the Director of Collaborative Learning for the Philadelphia Orchestra, it’s Michael’s duty to ensure that the Orchestra reaches out to the community and plays music for all to hear in the City of Brotherly Love. From visiting young students in places like Overbrook School for the Blind, to providing free concerts all over the city, the Philadelphia Orchestra realizes the importance of getting young people interested in the arts and excited about the promise of music.
