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 year we will still be providing engaging virtual School Concerts to all AISD elementary, middle and high schools. These concerts will also be available to schools outside of AISD, upon request.

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 (from Baroque to new compositions), introducing students to instrument families (elementary), invoking discussion, and energizing students to continue–or start–their excitement with music!

It’s our hope that we will be back to live music making in the fall of 2021 with School Concerts so we will be keeping information up so you know what we’re all about.

Cost:

Costs to AISD schools: ACMC is able to perform at AISD schools free of charge because of the generous support of certain individuals, foundations, and corporations. We will gladly accept contributions from your PTA and school to cover concert costs so that our limited funding can reach as many children as possible. Available funds to support free concerts are limited, please contact us early in the school year to schedule a concert for your students.

Cost to private schools and non-AISD schools: Contact us for fee schedule
