League of American Orchestras, in Partnership with American Composers Orchestra, Establishes Second 30-Orchestra Consortium, Continuing to Provide Opportunities for Women Composers Nationwide
Widely Acclaimed Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation Orchestral Commissions Program has Raised the Number of New Works and Repeat Performances by Women Composers Programmed Across the Country
Underscoring the significant successes of the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation Orchestral Commissions Program’s ongoing 30-orchestra consortium, the League of American Orchestras and American Composers Orchestra (ACO) have announced the formation of a second consortium taking place from 2024-26.
As in the original consortium, six women composers will receive commissions—Brittany J. Green, Moni (Jasmine) Guo, Karena Ingram, Chelsea Komschlies, Marina López, and Meilina Tsui for this round—and a consortium of 30 U.S. orchestras (five orchestras paired with each composer) will perform the works beginning in the 2024-25 season.
