2024 Youth Orchestra Confab

Friday, May 3, 2024 | SLO Performing Arts Center Founders' Room
Hosted by San Luis Obispo Symphony

ACSO's Youth Orchestra Confab is back for 2024! San Luis Obispo will host the Confab on Friday, May 3, 2024, at the SLO Performing Arts Center Founders' Room. More information coming soon, so mark your calendars.

 This one-day learning and networking experience is designed by and for those who manage youth orchestras and orchestra education staff. It is a time to gather together and discuss a wide range of issues and ideas that are specific to working with youth in the orchestra field. It's also a wonderful way to network with your peers, share resources, policies, and best practices, and brainstorm solutions to common challenges.

 Content planning is still underway, but we encourage you to fill out this survey to state your interest in attending and share what topics are most important to your orchestra right now.

If you have any questions, are interested in presenting or facilitating on a topic, or have recommendations for speakers, email [email protected]. We can't guarantee speaking assignments, but would love to know of your interest.


Who should attend? Youth orchestra or ensemble administrators, board, and volunteers; orchestra education staff; anyone working with young musicians and youth audiences.
