United by a common interest: the love of playing chamber music with others
The mission of ACMP - Associated Chamber Music Players - is to stimulate and expand the playing of chamber music for pleasure among musicians of all ages and skill levels, worldwide, by connecting people and supporting chamber music activities for individuals, groups and institutions.
Since publishing its first Directory in 1947, ACMP has been enabling chamber music players to find one another. More than 6,000 members come from every part of the world and share one interest: the love of making music with others.
