ACMP has announced a third year of sponsoring the ACMP Young Chamber Ensemble at From the Top on NPR. These funds provide an avenue for letting chamber music and classical music lovers know about ACMP on a national scale while supporting the next generation of chamber music players.
This year, ACMP will once again support two ACMP Young Chamber Ensembles. Each performs in a live From the Top show that is recorded and then broadcast nationally on NPR. Each time the performance of one of the ACMP Young Ensembles is aired, ACMP receives an on-air credit. In 2019, our name reached over 1.1 million listeners through this program. In addition, program ads, press releases and announcements bring our name and mission to audiences we could otherwise not reach.
The first 2019-2020 ACMP-sponsored program is on October 6, 2019 at Jordan Hall, NEC, Boston. The Kalico Quartet (players age 18) will perform Beethoven, String Quartet In C Minor, Op. 18, No. 4, movement 1. Also on the program are young musicians performing works for trumpet, cello, guitar, and piano. The air date and podcast release date are to be announced later this fall. More information here.
The second ACMP Young Chamber Ensemble in spring 2020 will be a percussion ensemble in spring 2020 - details to be confirmed.
From the Top is a non-profit organization dedicated to celebrating the stories, talents, and character of young classically-trained musicians.
