The ATLANTA CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL is a seven-day residential music festival for students of all orchestral instruments (Including euphonium) and piano in grades 6 to 12. 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 beautiful and historic campus of Agnes Scott College in downtown Decatur, GA, where evening activities include social events and concerts by our artist-faculty and guest artists. The experiences and connections students make during their inspiring week at ACMF last a lifetime.

Students who have completed grades 6-12 with at least one year of playing experience.
