Description

The ACO is pleased to announce plans for their new season. This year has presented many challenges for all of us, but hopefully better times are ahead. For the ACO, this means the opportunity to share new projects and programs with their fans. This season will be a bit different: with a combination of new digital projects providing unique insight into the music, and livestream performances featuring ACO musicians and guest artists.

This fall, they’re excited to share two special digital projects – free of charge – to uplift & entertain.

Then, they’ll kick off a series of live-streamed concerts in January – which, depending on the conditions at the time, may be able to welcome some live audiences.

This is a season of masterworks that I hope will provide solace to our audiences at a time when revisiting the classics can offer a deeply meaningful experience. I have selected this season’s music for its timeless appeal and its ability to unite in an apprehensive world.
