What we’re about
ACMA is a collaborative, vibrant community of people with a passion for music and the arts. Our primary mission is to inspire people through music and to continue building this community. We accomplish this through regularly scheduled recitals, social gatherings, and our Carnegie Hall concerts. We believe that all dedicated musicians, not just world-class professionals, should have the opportunity to perform in public.
For those who love music but do not sing or play an instrument, ACMA provides a forum to interact directly with other musicians and music lovers, via a steady series of opportunities to see and listen to live performances.
For the beginning or intermediate amateur musician who might be on the cusp of performing in public, we provide a supportive, non-critical environment in which to take the daunting but amazing first step onto the performance stage.
For the advanced amateur or professional-level musician, we connect a network of fellow musicians to an appreciative audience, encourage more and more challenging repertoire, and provide many wonderful performance opportunities.
Technical ability, although important, is not our main objective. Rather, we focus on the celebration and presentation of great works of music with enthusiasm and appreciation. We always encourage everyone to continue on their musical journey, wherever it may take them.
