WELCOME/AACM NEW YORK - Celebrating 54 Years of Artistic Dedication

The Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians is one of the oldest non-profit music organizations in the United States devoted to the presentation and performance of contemporary music. The year 2015 concluded a successful 50th anniversary celebration, we are thankful to be privileged with the opportunity to present and perform contemporary music as our journey continues.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, New York City Chapter members Alvin Fielder - January 5, 2019 and Joseph Jarman - January 9, 2019. We would like to express our sincere condolences to the families of these long-standing members.

The AACM enters its 54th year in 2019. We would like to introduce a series
of video slideshows as an acknowledgement to past and present members.
