    Associated Chamber Music Players (ACMP) Virtual Worldwide Play-In Schedule of Events

    March 20 – 21, 2021

    Associated Chamber Music Players (ACMP)’s annual chamber music jamming weekend, the Worldwide Play-In Weekend, will be held virtually this year on March 20 and 21, 2021. Each March, this grassroots event unites people of all ages and abilities through their common love of chamber music in honoring J.S. Bach during the month of his birth. ACMP is seeking chamber musicians to participate in and host Play-Ins. Join musicians around the globe in making joyous music together and organize your own Play-In event on JamKazam, Jamulus, SonoBus, Zoom, or any other virtual music session software of your choice. With repertoire ranging from J.S. Bach to Terry Riley, thus far there are eleven open sessions: six on Jamulus, two on JamKazam, one on JackTrip and two on Zoom; and at least eleven private sessions sponsored by ACMP members and grantees.
