As a result of the ongoing Covid 19 crisis we have sadly had to suspend all normal orchestral activities.

However, we are starting some limited rehearsals so it may be possible for us to perform a concert in the not too distant future. We will update this page as the situation develops.


If you are new to ACO and would like to take part in the rehearsals then please visit our Contact Page and say hello, we'd love to hear from you. Details of the new playing protocol can be found on our Back To Playing page.


2019 / 2020 Concert Season
