The American Composers Alliance presented summer music festivals from 2000 to 2011, as a showcase to introduce new works by ACA members and to honor past member composers.
With support from Symphony Space, the concert series became an active collaboration between composers and performers beyond the ACA concerts, and forging relationships between composers and top tier internationally known performers. Since 2004, ACA has presented new works by more than 100 composers, and more than 35 works by young composers, with support from the Alice M. Ditson Fund, the Argosy Foundation's Contemporary Music Fund, the Cary New Music Performance Fund, the Aaron Copland Fund for Music, the Puffin Foundation, BMI, and many generous individuals.
ACA Concerts provide a community meeting place for composers from around the United States and offers young composers the chance to hear their music played by top professionals.
ACA remains true to its original and continuing mission, to publish and promote its members and to support performances of their works.
