As the Atlantic Chamber Ensemble, our vision is a series of chamber music events where musicians and audience alike, come into contact with the art, with each other, and with themselves in meaningful and sometimes surprising ways.
To make classical music relevant to the 21st century audience by providing a framework for authentic human experiences of the art.
We value excellence. Our members are dedicated to performing at the highest artistic level, music both old and new, for which we have enthusiasm and excitement that we can share.
We value authentic experience. This allows us to communicate with our audiences verbally and non-verbally in honest ways to break down the barrier between artist and audience. It also allows us to inspire professional colleagues and students entering the professional world to think differently about the way they present their performances.
We value risk-taking. We want to inspire creative thinking, build new audiences, and inspire the artists of tomorrow through interactive programming that encourages active listening and imagination. This requires taking risks that may not work, but may pay off in ways we cannot even imagine.
We value accessibility. Anyone in our community should be able to experience our events, regardless of financial means. We are actively seeking ways to make this possible.
