As one of the first all female professional orchestras in the world, the ACO’s mandate is to empower women and those who identify as women through music, maintaining the role of the artist in society to bring to light issues that need to be addressed, while provoking creative thought and solutions, first within ourselves and then in the broader context of the community at large.
