The power of music in social change

The mission of the Adolf Busch Award is to recognize and honor organizations that use music to address social injustice, inequity and lack of opportunity.

Our Outlook

Though many of us on the Board of Advisors are active in diverse fields, we are united in our passion for music as both a form of art and communication.


Music has the power to bridge divisions and bring people together. With every note, we can effectively counter cultural bias, confront educational disadvantages, and empower individuals to successfully surmount economic and cultural challenges.

We believe in the transformative power of music to create a more just and civil society.
