Starting in 1921 as a group of volunteer musicians, ASO evolved into the state’s only full-time professional orchestra. ASO breaks the boundaries of music through concert, education and creativity to make symphonic music for everyone.

They believe you don’t need a degree in music to enjoy a symphony. When attending one of ASO’s concerts, you don’t have to worry about what you wear—just bring an open mind and a sense of enchantment.

Let the ASO musicians’ talent wow you as you listen and watch each member play live music as one. Each symphony tells a story that you get to be a part of as an audience member.

Because without you, there’d be no music
