ACO Audio Archive

ACO has performed over 800 composers in concerts in the last 40+ years and workshopped orchestral works by 250+ composers through the EarShot Readings program for 10+ years. The ACO Audio Archive includes recordings of some of these works. Many recordings are limited to a three-minute excerpt due to media agreements with concert venues and musicians. If you are exploring a work for future programming, please email us to ask about availability of archival recordings.  

Please note: ACO is transitioning 40+ years of data.The current archive is not comprehensive. To see a full list of works performed, please click here.
