Introducing ACMI! A brand new summer festival for emerging musicians and composers

Announcing Akropolis' Chamber Music Institute at Bay View, a 10-day summer festival designed to bring together talented emerging composers with innovative chamber performers located in the picturesque lake shore town of Petoskey, Michigan. ACMI's goal is to help launch your creative career as a 21st century artist through instruction in high-level performance, entrepreneurial thinking, and community collaboration.

For 10 days, the 8 musicians and 2 composers selected will work intensely with Akropolis: living, working, playing, and relaxing together as an artistic collective. ACMI is housed within the Bay View Music Festival, the longest continuously operating chamber music festival in the United States, situated at the heart of one of the country's most beautiful resort areas and Chautauquas. ACMI offers students an opportunity to perform and premiere new music in multiple recitals, receive extensive artistic instruction from Akropolis, perform deliver community outreach in Northern Michigan, create professional level recordings of the world premiere works, discuss personalized career advancement strategies and entrepreneurial practices, and experience the warm support of the Bay View and Petoskey community. As chamber music leaders, Akropolis has been dreaming up this festival for many years. We can't wait to share this experience with you in one of our favorite places on earth!
