Important Announcement from ACSO Board President

It is bittersweet to share the news that ACSO executive director Mitch Menchaca has been appointed as the new executive director of arts and culture for the City of Phoenix and will be stepping down from his ACSO post November 30 to assume his new role.

Mitch joined ACSO at a transitional time when Kris Sinclair stepped down after 31-years of service. During his tenure, he worked with the board and staff to start the next era in advancement of the organization and its unique mission. This included moving the office from Sacramento to Los Angeles, finding new revenue streams in LA County, and managing the development process of a new strategic plan. Mitch also upgraded the association’s technology, hired terrific new staff and retained key contractors. He facilitated the continued growth and excellence of ACSO’s program offerings, and he invested time in enhancing the profile on the organization's advocacy efforts.

With nearly 50 years of meaningful impact in the California orchestra landscape as its foundation, an ambitious strategic plan to guide its work, and an enthusiastic and committed board and membership to shape its future, ACSO will evolve and thrive as the voice, the network, and the forum for classical music in California.

The ACSO board is committed to ensuring continuity through interim leadership and a search for a new executive director is underway.
