The ATLANTA CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL is a seven-day residential music festival for middle and high school students of all orchestral instruments, jazz, and piano. ACMF stands out as one of very few festivals in the country with a chamber music focus for pre-college students, boasting an artist-faculty of the highest caliber in the Southeast, world renowned guest artists, thoughtful course offerings, and outstanding performance ensembles. All of this takes place on the historic campus of Emory University in Atlanta, GA, where evening activities include social events, trips to Emory Village, and concerts by our artist-faculty and guest artists. The experiences and connections students make during their inspiring week at ACMF last a lifetime!
"ACMF was the perfect balance of a demanding program and a supportive atmosphere. I was exhausted in the best way, and left a better player than I came in. I can't wait to go back next year!"
