Aspen Conducting Academy Orchestra Back To Performers

The Aspen Conducting Academy (ACA) Orchestra is the centerpiece of Aspen’s conductor-training program. The orchestra is guided by Music Director Robert Spano, established visiting conductors, and the next generation of up-and-coming conducting talents, who perform in the orchestra when not on the podium. The orchestra is led by an artist-faculty concertmaster, with the rest of the ensemble composed of student fellows. The curriculum includes weekly orchestral concerts, concerto performances, opera scenes classes, repertoire readings, and a family concert. Performances are Wednesdays at 5:00 pm.
