School Concerts

Through School Concerts, ACMC is able to educate by presenting interactive performances of chamber music to elementary, middle and high school students. Concerts take place in the schools, and each of our professional ensembles offers a unique presentation in what it means to play and listen to chamber music.

During the 2020/2021 school year ACMC will be providing engaging virtual School Concerts to schools and families for FREE!

The concerts will feature local musicians with the same goals in mind as our in-person School Concerts by presenting a variety of chamber music repertoire, introducing students to instrument families, invoking discussion, and energizing students to continue–or start–their excitement with music!

It’s our hope that School Concerts will return to in-person performances in the 2021/2022 year. CLICK HERE to see what that looks like and how you can stay in the loop about those plans!

Share Your Feedback

ACMC is able to provide virtual School Concerts for FREE through generous sponsors and donors. Please let us know what you and your music students thought by reaching out to Aurel Garza-Tucker or by using form at the bottom of the page. We would love to see completed concert worksheets, drawings, stories, letters, and reactions from students if you have them!

Our funders like to see the impact our programs have on the music community, especially Title 1 schools. Support letters from teachers help us show our funders why these concerts–live or virtual–are vital for students of all ages. Without their support, and teacher support, we are not able to make these concerts free to our community!
