The ACSO Annual Conference centers around the field’s needs and is in response to industry challenges and trends for more than 300 attendees.

 


Professional development topics are centered around orchestra management fundamentals, including marketing, fundraising, governance, planning, and finance, as well as issues facing our communities, like cultural diversity, policy, and advocacy.

This year, the Annual Conference is hosted by the Los Angeles Philharmonic (LA Phil) in conjunction with the National Take a Stand Symposium, which brings together leaders, teachers, researchers, and key stakeholders from around the world with a vested interest in the El Sistema movement and progressive practices in music education. Registration to the ACSO Annual Conference gets you access to the National Take a Stand Symposium – two convenings for the price of one!
