Concert Season

A thematic series of concerts throughout the fall and spring in private homes, public venues, and online.

Favorite Things

2021–2022 Season

After a season of longing, we deserve a season of favorites! Here in Favorite Things, we’ve accumulated a series of some of the greatest works, stories, and personalities in chamber music to connect us through a year of rejuvenation. See the program for each concert weekend below.

Friday Intimate Concerts: An up-close-and-personal setting for chamber music, taking place at KMFA during the 2021–2022 season. Tickets include complimentary drinks and hors d’oeuvres served at a post-concert reception with the artists.
Virtual Access: Those who cannot attend the weekend program in person can sign up for ACMC’s exclusive livestream on that Friday night. Access is available on a sliding scale and includes on-demand access through May 31.
Saturday Synchronism Concerts: Public performances in tandem with the Friday night programs, taking place at the ACMC lobby and the First Unitarian Church.

We are closely monitoring the pandemic and its impact on in-person events. With the health and safety of our community in mind, ACMC has updated our COVID-19 guidelines in accordance with City of Austin and CDC. View all recent updates to our programming by visiting our COVID-19 Response page.
