Join us for an evening of powerful, deeply meaningful chamber works, which tether us to the past, (specifically the history of John Brown) while forging a new path of hope and optimism into our future.

Just across the street from the courthouse where John Brown was tried, this performance features the world premiere of work based on themes relating to John Brown and the surrounding natural area composed by Ailbhe McDonagh. Also included are works by Beethoven, Phillip Glass, Mark David Boden and more.

Covid news:

ACMF believes we need music and cultural experiences now more than ever, which is why it is so important to us to bring live in-person performances to our audience this Summer 2021.

We are closely monitoring Covid-19 safety protocols and guidelines in the area, and have plans in place to make the festival a success! This includes a thorough social-distancing safety protocol, and excitingly, most of our events will be available live-streamed and in digital format via our Facebook page, YouTube and other platforms as well as in-person.
