Upcoming Events ~ Whats New

Armstrong Chamber Concerts is a not-for-profit, chamber music organization founded 25 years ago by internationally known concert violinist, Helen Armstrong. Helen Armstrong

ACC’s mission was to broaden public interest in and knowledge of chamber music through performance and education. The heart of this mission is to bring musical education to public school systems and private schools through its Students' Music Enrichment Program. ACC’s reputation has been built on the world- renowned artists who performed with Helen Armstrong in varying combinations with a repertoire that spaned the musical spectrum.

In the past, ACC had presented a concert series from October through June in Greenwich and New Milford, CT as well as New York City.

Itzhak Perlman, Skitch Henderson, Peter Duchin, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hugh Downs have all contributed their talents to support ACC's artistic goals.

ACC’s primary activities are:

• Series Concerts: A critically acclaimed concert series performed in Greenwich and New Milford, Connecticut, as well as in New York City.
  (due to the sudden death of our beloved Helen Armstrong we no   longer have a concert series)

• Students' Music Enrichment Program: An in-school program to enhance existing music programs or initiate new ones in public and private schools.

• Salon Concerts: Intimate concerts in private homes to revitalize the original meaning of chamber music.

• Benefit Concerts: Performances primarily organized for major charitable causes, which also benefit ACC’s charitable activities.
