Now Music
Expanding what we believe to be possible in Chamber Music.

Now Music is the next generation of Piano & Friends. It retains the heart of that series which AFCM launched in 1995 in order to present young professional artists in recital, but will evolve to encompass much more. The world of chamber music is thriving and, even within the classical form that constitutes AFCM’s focus, new musicians continue to emerge on the world stage and ensembles continue to experiment with form.

At the same time, the ways in which we can enjoy chamber music are evolving: an unexpected venue, a cocktail reception before or a dessert soirée after, opportunities to meet the musicians, and options to experience music in a casual atmosphere. As we expand what we believe to be possible, we urge you to keep your eye on this series as an exciting space in which chamber music will prove itself a vital and vibrant form of musical enjoyment for concertgoers of all ages and interests.

This season, we present four concerts, one of which is a tribute to Leonard Bernstein on the 100th anniversary of his birth.
