ACO isn't the only organization that sponsors new music readings. Below is a list of other groups that provide composers with opportunities to hear their music played by a professional orchestra.
For more opportunities check out member services of American Music Center, the "composer opportunities" section of American Composers Forum, and the "opportunities" section of Meet The Composer. You may also check out ACO's composer opportunity blog.
If you know of an orchestra that holds readings and is not mentioned, please contact us at with the information and we'll add them to our list. Or, if you are interested in starting a readings program, you can contact ACO for information on how to do it.
