Our Values and Commitment

At ACSO, we stand for equity and inclusion and against racism and injustice. We value the lives of the Black community, including the musicians, board and staff members, donors and supporters, and audiences within our membership network.

We value our members' ongoing work to bring music into the world that uplifts, unites, heals, and liberates. One such example is this incredible 130-member virtual performance by the Oakland Symphony of the classic Bill Withers song “Lean on Me.”

We commit to investing in training, resources, and services for the orchestral field around diversity, equity, and inclusion in audience engagement, artistic planning, organizational management, and governance.

To that end, below are some resources that we invite you to explore.
