World Wide Play-In

Receive up to $500 for a live, in-person public play-in in your area during the ACMP World Wide Play In Weekend


ACMP is offering grants of up to $500 in support of public Play-Ins during or around the time of its Worldwide Play-In weekends in October and May of each year.

The ACMP Worldwide Play-In Weekend is an annual celebration of chamber music playing. This grassroots event unites people of all ages and abilities through their common love of chamber music. Participants host play-ins worldwide in creative ways, in groups small and large, in settings informal and structured. A "Play-In" is defined as an event where musicians meet, often for the first time, and read chamber music for pure pleasure. Play-ins are not performances, but some include non-playing listeners.
