“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.
