About the Mobile Ensemble Initiative
The American Center for Elemental Music and Movement (ACEMM) is happy to announce that three (3) instrumental ensembles will soon become available to AOSA Chapters who wish to partner with ACEMM in fulfilling its mission to reach out to teachers, students, schools and communities to provide opportunities for better music education. The goal is to place the ensembles with qualified instructors, in locations where they may serve the greatest need. ACEMM feels that Chapters are uniquely positioned to identify school or community needs and place the Ensembles among their membership in good locations. Three AOSA Chapters will receive a Mobile Ensemble through an application process which describes how this initiative fits in with their own goals. The Ensembles are comprised of quality pitched and un-pitched instruments, in new or very good condition. Read on to find out more details, as well as how your chapter can apply to receive a Mobile Ensemble. The inventories of the Ensembles are fairly uniform and may found below.
How to Apply:

How will the Mobile Ensemble Chapter Recipients be decided?
The Mobile Ensemble Committee made up of Directors of ACEMM, will review the applications and notify all applicants in early January, 2019. Arrangements will then be made with the receiving Chapters for delivery of the Ensembles to a mutually determined destination (school, home, community center, etc.) at no charge to the chapter. Delivery will be made by commercial shipping or, if possible, by a driver.
