ACO Annual Reports

We look back at the 2018-19 season and marvel at the community of artists and audience that converged at ACO events. George, Derek and Ed program an ever-adventurous and horizon-expanding repertoire. This season’s Carnegie Hall series brought us a sci-fi opera by Alex Temple, a concerto for Imani Winds by Valerie Coleman, a multimedia oratorio by Du Yun and Khaled Jarrar, a rarely heard work by Morton Feldman, and the recognition of two composers celebrating their 80th Birthdays: Joan Tower and Gloria Coates.

Our Mission & Vision

American Composers Orchestra (ACO) is dedicated to the creation, celebration, performance, and promotion of orchestral music by American composers. With commitment to diversity, disruption and discovery, ACO produces concerts, pre-college and college education programs, and emerging composer professional development to foster a community of creators, audience, performers, collaborators, and funders.
