ACSO Communities in Crisis Concert Fund

The ACSO Communities in Crisis Concert Fund has been established to support communities throughout the state and region that have been affected by natural disasters and other tragedies and are coming together to heal through the power of music.

The purpose is to provide our members with funds to help offset the production costs associated with special relief concerts that they are staging to bring the community they serve closer and cope with the significant crisis they are facing.

Our inaugural efforts go to support our members in the North Bay Area affected by wildfires, including the Santa Rosa Symphony's November 20 Community Concert. The concert will be free to the public and all proceeds will go to the North Bay Fire Relief Fund.
