Group auditions are typically held twice per season: once in mid-August and once in early January. Auditions 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.

For January 2014, there are no openings in any sections and there will be no group audition scheduled.  Contact the Music Director in August if you are still interested in playing with the ACO.

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.
