Association of British Orchestras

The Association of British Orchestras

The Association of British Orchestras was founded in 1947 and exists to support and develop the collective interests of the UK orchestral profession, working to create a national and international environment in which it can flourish, artistically and financially.

The ABO seeks to serve orchestras as a whole and all who work in them - management, administration and players alike - and counts among its members all the major UK symphony orchestras (BBC and independent; London and regional), chamber orchestras, small and specialist orchestras and ensembles, youth orchestras and conservatoires.

The ABO has in affiliate membership a number of organisations who share the aims of the Association, such as composers' organisations, artists' agents, venues and concert promoters.
