|Organized in 1964 by its affiliated organization, the National Association of Orchestra Leaders, the Wisconsin Association Chapter is composed of Orchestra Leaders/employers who have banded together for the common purpose of promoting and enhancing the orchestra/dance business.
Reflecting upon the past, the Wisconsin Orchestra Leaders Association is proud to boast of our accomplishments in the music field. The institution and sponsorship of January Polka Music Month, Polka Music Month Public Rally, Northeastern Wisconsin Polka Festival, Testimonial Dinners and Dances honoring deserving people for devoted service to the music industry, Polkarama Festival, and the All-Star Orchestra Leader Dances are just some of the live music promotional projects that are carried out by this progressively active organization. Over the years some of these projects were dropped and some were added to keep our organization both strong and healthy.
The Association strives for stability, reliability and quality services and performances. By cooperating with music purchasers, sidemen/employees, and fellow orchestra leaders for the benefit of our mutual interests, we look to the future with confidence for an ever-growing polka dance atmosphere, and to this we are dedicated.
