Internationally renowned for unparalleled contributions to modern music, the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, Inc. (AACM) has been an inspirational leader within the cultural community since 1965. Since its inceptions, one mission of the AACM has been to provide an atmosphere conducive to the development of its member artists and to continue the AACM legacy of providing leadership and vision for the development of creative music. The AACM first coined the phrase Great Black Music to describe its unqiue direction in music. The AACM pays homage to the diverse styles of expression within the body of Black Music in the USA, Africa and throughout the world. This experience extends from the ancient music of Africa to the music of the future. 

The AACM, always exciting and unconventional, has thrilled audiences with innovative and provocative musical presentations for years. With the current lineup, concert-goers will receive pleasing expressions from the Outer Realms, those barely explored regions of space and experience, distant from containing structures, the domain of untapped possibilities. The series will offer an acclaimed roster of performers, diverse in their approaches yet unified by their determination to challenge the boundaries that tend to limit creative expression and perceptual experience.
