Update May 8, 2023

As the coronavirus pandemic continued to cancel live performances across the world, many freelance performers found themselves suddenly without necessary performance income expected. In response, ACA's initiative to support players sheltering at home began: Shelter Recordings.

Professional musicians sheltering at home were invited to select works to record from the ACA catalog.  These are DIY, not in-studio recordings., and must be made during the artist's quarantine period.

The recorded repertoire came from two sources: works from ACA's legacy program, and works by active ACA composers selected in an ongoing call-for scores. Contributions received went directly to players'  fees. As projects were completed, they were posted here and on our Youtube channel.

Our warmest thanks for your support of this program, which allowed ACA to continue collaborating with the new music community through the pandemic.
