After four long years, the ACSO Conference is back in-person, and it is the first time in our 54-year history we are bringing the conference to the Inland Empire...or the I.E. Originally known as the "Orange Empire" because of its deep roots in the citrus industry, today it is the third largest metropolitan area in the state, has a population of nearly 5 million, and covers more than 27,000 square miles. The I.E. often flies under the radar despite its fascinating history, inspiring scenic beauty, and incredible arts and culture scene. We cannot wait to reconnect with you at our conference and get to know the I.E. together!   


This year's conference theme – Uplift and Amplify – reflects the purpose of the conference: to inspire, revitalize, connect, and support those working in orchestras and the performing arts.

This theme will guide many of our sessions and speakers and inspire innovative conversation and new ideas.

The theme also emphasizes the foremost work of our industry today: to center the needs of our audiences, welcome new voices, and use the power of music to serve and strengthen our communities.
