Access to Music Series
“If music can extend its energy into a broader role,

Each concert includes a work by a local composer. This same work is performed in an additional city, thus creating a “round-robin” effect and giving the selected composers double exposure. As well, the programs are repeated in outreach settings—at local prisons, rehabilitation and psychiatric centers, women's shelters, and other institutions whose residents cannot travel to hear music's power.
ATM's recitals have taken place in St. Paul, Tucson, Los Angeles, Denver and Washington DC. Other cities will be strategically added on an annual basis, ensuring a strong ripple effect across the country.
