Since 1958 the 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.
A New Look! The 2023-2024 Concert Season…
The stage is set for what is going to be a musical season like no other. Three fabulous Guest Conductors join our family this year to present programming born of their imagination and vision for creating engaging, interactive, educational, and fun concerts. On the main stage we will feature our full ensemble concerts with guest soloists and collaboration. The “In Your Neighborhood – Engagement Series” heralds the return of our popular small ensemble concerts and will feature guest soloists showcasing their broadway talents as well as rhythms from “Crossroads Call” Bluegrass Trio and orchestrations made just for the ACSO for the Celtic rhythms concert.
As the ACSO heads into its 66th season, we are thrilled to be working with fantastic guest conductors! They share a passion for music and share in the ACSO’s vision of promoting the appreciation and enjoyment of music and helping to build our community around music. We welcome Phillip E. Allen, Robert Trocina, and Pablo Zamora to our family for the 2023-2024 season!
