Described as “vital,” “brilliant,” and “electrifying,” by The New York Times, the American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME) is a force for new music, dedicated to the outstanding performance of masterworks from the 20th and 21st centuries. The ensemble’s instrumentation is flexible, and includes some of today’s most soughtafter composer musicians such as pianist Timo Andres and Pulitzer-Prize winner Caroline Shaw. From Carnegie Hall to Le Poisson Rouge, their eclectic appeal opens doors to a broad range of the world’s leading venues. For this very special project — sited within and responsive to a contemporary illustration exhibit — audience members are immersed in thrilling music by noted composers Charlemagne Palestine, Philip Glass, Clarice Jensen and Morton Feldman.


“Such soul, passion, and excellent command.”
