Eighth Annual ACMP Worldwide Play-In 2020 – Reports

Each year players from around the world come together to celebrate chamber music with friends, new and old, during the ACMP Worldwide Play-In Weekend. Although this year many were canceled due to novel corona, there was still music and joy in the air as members and non-members came together to play together. Play-ins popped up in Miami, Fl; Lawrenceville, NJ; New York, NY; West Newton, MA; San Lorenzo, CA; Troy, NY; Sarasota, FL; Vernon Rockville, Virgina; Washington, D.C.; Flint, MI; Keene, NJ; Louisville, KY; Indianapolis, IN; Brussels, Belgium; Geneva Switzerland; Gamboa, Panama; Berlin among others.

We had a wonderful Play-in in Berlin on the last pre-Corona weekend, when we were still allowed to gather as a group. 17 players attended over the two days. We started on Saturday with Bach’s 4th Brandenburg Concerto and on Sunday with Bach’s F Minor Piano Concerto – a joint prelude to warm up. And then we split into small groups and explored works for strings and winds – Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Lachner, Förster, Schubert, Dvořák, and more.
