The Tessitura Network is comprised of more than 400 of the world’s premiere arts and cultural organizations united by a common technology in order to achieve operational excellence.  Our Network members include theatres, orchestras, performing arts centers, festivals, dance companies, opera companies, museums and university arts affiliated departments and venues.  Company efforts are guided by a team of globally-located, highly-qualified industry professionals. The Tessitura Network is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation governed by an elected Board of Tessitura users, and is fueled by fees for applicable services and products in addition to a dues-based membership program.

Tessitura Network Core Values reflect what is truly important to us as an organization. These are not values that change, but rather they are the underpinning of the Network and represent the soul of the company:

  • Collaboration – The Network reinforces collaboration, openness, mutual respect, discovery, and inspiration in all of its activities.
  • Innovation – The Network is entrepreneurial and innovative. It engages in activities designed to anticipate and provide for the current and future business needs of its members while removing impediments to the successful fulfillment of their missions.
  • Excellence – The Network encourages and nurtures an ecosystem that attracts the best people who create, enhance, evolve and support the best products and services.
  • Egalitarianism – The Network is an organization where every member has equal access to services and benefits and in which members function both as its customers and owners.
  • Community – The Network is a member-centric, community driven organization that fosters a trusted environment for member and staff involvement and participation.

The Tessitura Network highly values the input of its members; we are truly driven by what functionality will best serve the arts, cultural and entertainment market. In fact the vast majority of functional changes to Tessitura Software, from large-scale features to small cosmetic changes, are implemented at the request of the Membership. This user-driven approach is unique in the industry and ensures that we are in touch with the best possible product for our member organizations.
