Disruption: Creating Opportunities Through Change

August 4–August 6 • Oakland Marriott City Center in Oakland

In the tech industry, instigating disruption is celebrated and worn as a badge of honor. As the proliferation of smartphones and tech products impact ever more aspects of our lives, it is affecting society’s relationship to the performing arts. Information on artists, composers and events is readily available online – younger audiences crave an “experience” around each concert that they might attend. How does the orchestra fit into this new society?  

Take Note

We are taking a year off from our “Ask an Expert” free consultation during Conference as we reformat the program.

Thanks to our friends at various orchestras who give us prizes for the annual Musical Drawing fundraiser. We are very grateful for your participation and are happy to showcase your organization and community.

We’d love to have you stay a bit after luncheon on Saturday to say goodbye to Kris Sinclair, who leaves ACSO after 31 years as executive director. And this will be your opportunity to meet ACSO’s next executive director!
