• 1314 Performance Galapagos Jennifer Taylor 300

    Performance

    “The new face of classical music for New York ... these performers have the musical goods,” said The New York Times.

    This is just one of the many accolades Ensemble ACJW has received for the quality of its performances and its fresh and open-minded approach, performing a wide range of music—from centuries past to works written days before an event—in a variety of performance venues. The group performs its own series at Carnegie Hall and has regularly appeared at The Juilliard School’s Paul Hall and other venues throughout New York City, including (Le) Poisson Rouge nightclub in Greenwich Village, Subculture in NoHo, and Galapagos Art Space in Brooklyn.

    ACJW performs throughout New York City as part of Carnegie Hall's series of free Neighborhood Concerts.

  • Skidmore College Residency 1314 ACJW Skidmore 300

    Twice annually, the fellows participate in a five-day residency at Skidmore College. While on campus, the fellows offer master classes, lessons, and class demonstrations, as well as play side by side with students of the Skidmore College Orchestra and read student compositions. Ensemble ACJW performs in the Arthur Zankel Music Center’s Helen Filene Ladd Concert Hall, presenting concert programs that include world premieres commissioned by Carnegie Hall. The commissioned composers are present during the residency to collaborate with the fellows before the world-premiere performances. In addition, the fellows and composers offer interactive demonstrations and informal performances beyond the music department in classes, dormitories, and libraries, as well as in schools and other community venues in Saratoga Springs.
