Auditions are typically held twice per season: once in mid-August and once in early January. An audition should include 5-6 minutes of music from an étude, solo work, sonata, or concerto movement and should showcase both technical and musical abilities. If you are interested in joining the Orchestra, please send Music Director Lois Ferrari an email that communicates your interest and a brief outline of your performance history.

Auditions for the 2016-2017 season will take place on the evening of August 16th in the Anderson High School Orchestra Room, 8403 Mesa Dr., Austin, TX 78759. Please email Music Director Lois Ferrari if interested.

The ACO is a civic organization and, as such, members pay of dues to help defray the cost of music purchases and rentals, venue fees, staff salaries, equipment moving, program printing, and advertising. ACO dues are $75 per season. If paid by the first concert, you receive one comp ticket to each concert of the season.
