Chamber Concerts is a not-for-profit,
chamber music organization founded 25 years ago by internationally
known concert violinist, Helen Armstrong.
ACCs 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. ACCs 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
Itzhak Perlman, Skitch Henderson, Peter
Duchin, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hugh Downs have all contributed their talents to support
ACC's artistic goals.
ACCs 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
Salon Concerts: Intimate concerts in private homes to
revitalize the original meaning of chamber music.
Community Outreach: Includes concerts in senior citizen
centers, libraries, concerts for town events and a prison series.
Benefit Concerts: Performances primarily organized for
major charitable causes, which also benefit ACCs charitable
Corporate Concerts: Sponsored by corporations and businesses

For twenty-five years ACC has serviced the communities in which it performs
