Spotlight – Why ACEMM Matters

Why ACEMM Matters: The Power of Multiplication

With the holidays upon us, we find ourselves in a time of reflection of past, present and future. We gather with loved ones to give thanks for the blessings our lives have brought us. We celebrate living in the moment with festivals of light and giving, and we dedicate ourselves to renewal and hope with the promises of a new year and a bright future.

In advance of #GivingTuesday, we wanted to share thoughts on why ACEMM matters from members of the ACEMM Community. As you reflect on your own blessings and visions for the future, we thank you for your support of ACEMM.

Summer Spotlight: Sol Weber

Elemental music making takes on many shapes and forms. It is music that a participant can make with relative ease and without much instruction in technique or formal study. The voice is perhaps the most elemental of all instruments. Bringing people together to form a community of singers could be considered one of the most ancient of musical ensembles imaginable. True to the varied nature of elemental music and movement experiences, leaders of elemental music making can spring forth from just about anywhere. The rounds singing master Sol Weber is one such leader and guiding light in the participatory music making community.
