Auburn Community Orchestra

The Auburn Community Orchestra’s (ACO) mission is to continue to build on tradition by showcasing excellent performances for the Auburn, Opelika and East Alabama area in order to immerse Alabama communities in orchestral concerts. The group is comprised of musicians in the community including public school and university students, professors, as well as both amateur and professional musicians.

The ACO partners with the Jan Dempsey Community Arts Center to provide orchestral concerts in the community. The ACO is governed by a board made up of local musicians, artists and business persons in the community. Chris Rodger, ACO Board President, encourages membership to anyone, individual, student, senior, family, benefactor and corporate sponsors. If you would like to become a member, volunteer or sponsor the ACO, please contact him at
