Austin Civic Orchestra Board of Directors
The Austin Civic Orchestra (ACO) is a non-profit civic organization that has been around since 1977. The ACO is devoted to bringing high quality music to the community and providing a musical outlet for professional and non-professional musicians alike. The ACO performs six to eight concerts each season, all of which offer programming to suit a wide variety of musical tastes, from traditional classics to pops and most everything in between. Presented at assorted convenient locations in the Austin area, the relaxed atmosphere and affordable cost have proven appealing to this community. In addition, we have several unique education programs directed to the youth in our area, as we recognize we must do our part to nurture the next generation in the appreciation of orchestral music.

We are seeking individuals committed to the Orchestra’s mission: to foster an appreciation for the transformative power of orchestral music through high-quality musical performances and educational experiences for the Austin community.

By bringing on members of the community, we hope to continue making classical music more accessible to the Austin community. We strive to remove barriers to attend concerts and participate in the other programs. The board currently has contracted staff for the day-to-day management of the orchestra.
