Mission Statement
The Boston Modern Orchestra Project (BMOP) is the premier orchestra in the United States dedicated exclusively to commissioning, performing, and recording music of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. A unique institution of crucial artistic importance to today’s musical world, BMOP exists to disseminate exceptional orchestral music and opera of the present and recent past via performances and recordings of the highest caliber. BMOP/sound, BMOP’s distinguished independent recording label, was created to provide a platform for BMOP’s extensive archive of music, as well as to provide widespread, top-quality, permanent access to both classics of the 20th century and the music of today’s most innovative composers.

The Boston Modern Orchestra Project is widely recognized as the leading orchestra in the United States dedicated exclusively to performing new music, and its signature record label, BMOP/sound, is the nation’s foremost label launched by an orchestra and solely devoted to new music recordings.

Members of the Board of Trustees, Advisory Board, and the Score Board have a unique energy and a fresh, individual outlook on the arts. Comprised of executives, academicians, and entrepreneurs with relevant financial, educational, managerial, and artistic expertise, they are a diverse group of professionals representing several Boston-based companies, law firms, and non-profit organizations.

The BMOP staff realizes the orchestra’s mission by developing programs, creating partnerships with individuals and organizations that share our interests, advocating for new audiences, and working outside the box to insure BMOP’s fiscal health and vitality.
