The ACO Go! Team

by Madeline Warner

Help keep great orchestral music accessible to everyone in Austin! The Austin Civic Orchestra plays all the hits, new and old, at unbeatable prices ($0-15). We are local musicians who volunteer our time to make music together, for YOU. Your support keeps tickets affordable, and keeps us in the best venues in Austin so that our performances are the highest quality for both our live audience and the CD listeners at home. Playing in the ACO and serving on its board of directors has been an integral part of my life and identity in Austin. Its success and growth would not be achieved or meaningful without our audience to support us. Thank you for letting me play my oboe with these wonderful people!

Celebrate ACO's 40 year anniversary!

by Amy Crandell

The Austin Civic Orchestra is now 40 years old! I love playing bassoon with this orchestra and being involved with the board. It is an understatement to say the ACO is a big part of my life. Help us celebrate 40 years of being in tune with Austin. My goal is 10 or more $40 donations. (40 would be great). Consider helping me out!

$4,000 for our 40th!

by Lois Ferrari

It's the ACO's 40th anniversary so I am hoping to raise at least $4,000 (or $40,000 - I'm not picky) in honor of this all-volunteer orchestra comprised of wonderful musicians from all walks of life. Help me break a record and at the same time support an organization that has served the Austin area community and beyond for 4 decades! Help us continue to admit kids free to all our concerts and to sponsor promising young musicians as soloists and participants. Help us continue our commitment to generate new music by supporting the bi-annual composition contest. Winners receive a $1,000 prize. Perhaps you will sponsor the next great composer! Help us to afford new music purchases, new percussion equipment, and to secure first-rate venues in which to perform. $2,000 underwrites one of our concerts. Thank you for your support! Dr. Lois Ferrari ACO Music Director

Help Me Celebrate ACO's 40th Anniversary!

by Melissa Vauk

I have been playing bassoon with the ACO since 1998! To say that this group has become a kind of second family for me would be an understatement! I look forward to Tuesday nights and making music with wonderful people every single week! I have also served as the treasurer for the orchestra for almost all of the years that I've been with the ACO, so I KNOW how expensive our concerts can be! :-) Please consider making a donation to help us continue to produce wonderful musical experiences for the people of Austin. My goal is $1,977, which is the year in which this wonderful organization came to be! Thank you!

Happy 40th ACO!

by Gloria Lee

When I turned 50, I decided to start playing violin again after a very, very long hiatus. After a bit of work, I auditioned. My first concert was at ACO's debut at the Long Center's Dell Hall. I am thrilled to be in this all-volunteer orchestra. We perform classical, contemporary and commissioned work in a wide range of venues. I would love to see ACO make it to their 50th anniversary, and hope you will help. My goal is to get donations of $40 or $50, but I would appreciate any amount that you are able to give. Thanks for your support!

ACO 2017

by Tani Barr-Kermani

The ACO is very near and dear to my heart - I've found a musical family here for nearly 18 years, and honestly can't imagine my life without this orchestra! It's been truly a blessing to grow musically each and every year, to share the stage with such talented, passionate, amazing musicians. I hope you'll consider donating, to help us bring affordable music to Austin for many years to come.
