For over 50 years, ACSO has been the professional network of organizations and individuals linked together by their passion for classical music - a focused and dynamic cohort of arts professionals, musicians, conductors, artist managers, emerging leaders, donors, patrons, and trustees. 

ACSO is the go-to service provider for orchestras and choruses in the West, but it is also a wonderful resource for individual staff, board members, volunteers, and musicians who work for classical music providers and want to grow in their roles and connect with their peers. 

It is also a great way for affiliated businesses to cultivate connections and direct relationships with existing and new clients, as ACSO serves over 130 orchestras and their 2000+ board and staff members. Membership benefits for businesses include low-cost exhibit space at the Annual Conference, access to decision makers, and excellent opportunities for networking.
