Led since 1989 by violinist and Artistic Director Richard Tognetti, this internationally renowned 18-piece string orchestra performs classical masterworks alongside new commissions and innovative collaborations across art forms. Members use both modern and historic instruments, and only the cellists are seated, adding to the air of energy and individuality.
The ACO was founded in 1975 and has performed in over 350 cities in nearly 40 countries, including appearances at Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, London’s Wigmore Hall, New York’s Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, Vienna’s Musikverein, Birmingham’s Symphony Hall and the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.
