Support

The Atlanta Community Symphony Orchestra (ACSO) needs your support.

Our Mission

Since 1958 ACSO has pursued a two part mission: to provide local musicians of all ages and backgrounds the opportunity to perform in a full symphony orchestra and to present quality symphonic programs to the Greater Atlanta community with up to six free concerts a season. Each year we also present the Ruth Kern Young Artists’ Concerto Concert; giving several young performers the rare opportunity to perform a concerto with the ACSO.

These free concerts benefit young students, the elderly, and the community at large. We perform at numerous venues in the Atlanta area, providing easy access to free concerts to a broad community.

We need you financial support to continue this long tradition of service to our community. All of our player/members are non-paid volunteers. But, we do hire our Conductor, string coach who also servers as Concert Master, and professional soloists for selected concerts. There are expenses for sheet music, rehearsal and performance venues, equipment and other costs.

You Can Help

You can help us bring music to our community by making a contribution to the orchestra. All contributions are tax deductible, and all contributors will be recognized on our concert programs for the season under the following categories.

We hope that you will be able to support our mission, and most of all, we hope that we will see you at our concerts.

Other sponsorship levels include the benefits mentioned above in addition to:

Advertise and Become a Sponsor

Last year, thousands of playbills or concert programs were distributed to our audiences. We have had enthusiastic participation from our advertising sponsors, and have been able to share their messages with a large portion of the greater Atlanta community. We encourage you to please consider purchasing an ad and assisting us with our musical performances and community outreach for the 2016-2017 59th concert season. The ACSO produces professional-quality playbills, in full color, which will be distributed at every concert performance throughout the year.

The small cost of an ACSO program ad is easily offset if you gain a single new customer, and your business will gain goodwill from its support of the arts in Atlanta.
