The 40th Annual Festival of New American Music continues with a performance by the American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME). Led by Artistic Director and cellist Clarice Jensen, ACME is dedicated to the performance of masterworks from the 20th and 21st centuries. NPR calls them "contemporary music dynamos,” and The New York Times describes ACME’s performances as “vital,” “brilliant,” and “electrifying.” ACME was honored by ASCAP during its 10th anniversary season in 2015 for the “virtuosity, passion, and commitment with which it performs and champions American composers.” ACME has performed at leading international venues including Carnegie Hall, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, (Le) Poisson Rouget, Columbia University's Miller Theatre, Washington Performing Arts, UCLA's Royce Hall, Stanford Live, Constellation Chicago, Chicago’s Millennium Park, Krannert Center for the Performing Arts, Jordan Hall in Boston, Harvard’s Sanders Theatre, The Library of Congress in DC, and many others. ACME has recorded for Deutsche Grammophon, New World, New Amsterdam, and Butterscotch Records.
