ASO is the child of the all-volunteer Hingham Civic Orchestra (est.1946, HIngham, MA), which reorganized as the Hingham Symphony Orchestra in 1997. By 2007, we were fully professional and renamed the Atlantic Symphony Orchestra after a public process, to better reflect our growing regional identity. Under the artistic leadership of our distinguished music director and conductor, Jin Kim, ASO has become one of the premier regional orchestras in New England, known for its level of play. Members of the orchestra consist of both seasoned and gifted young professionals from the world’s leading conservatories. Many ASO musicians have earned positions in major symphony orchestras around the world, including Boston, San Francisco, NY Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, National Symphony, Seoul Philharmonic, Orchestre de Paris, and Israel Philharmonic. In 2012, we partnered as the “orchestra in residence” at Thayer Academy’s Center for the Arts, in Braintree, MA, which is now our concert hall for main symphonic performances and gives us a permanent, centrally located “home” in the region we serve. Other ASO events are held in various locations around the region, including annual concerts on the lawn at Glastonbury Abbey and at the House of Prayer, in Hingham, and bi-annual concerts at Jordan Hall, in Boston. Looking forward, we plan to add regular performance venues in communities north, west and south-west of Braintree. Currently, we draw regular audiences from over 30 Greater Boston-south communities. ASO is a member of the New England Orchestra Consortium and the South Shore Chamber of Commerce. Please see our "Organization Notes" for more about us.
