Appomattox Chamber Society (ACS)
The Appomattox Chamber Society (ACS) focuses on the performance of Baroque and early Classical Chamber music on period instruments. Chamber music was typically written for groups of two to five musicians and was intended for small, intimate settings. ACS draws from musicians playing recorder, baroque flute, baroque violin, and viola da gamba, to present pieces with a variety of instrumental combinations. In addition to the musical presentation, ACS enjoys acquainting its listeners with some interesting history about baroque and classical music, instruments, and composers.
