Amateur Chamber Music Players of South Australia (ACMPSA)

ACMPSA is an association of chamber music enthusiasts who contact and meet other musicians of their own level of proficiency to play in groups of any size from duos upwards. Even octets are sometimes formed. Members often form groups which meet regularly in each other's homes, but ACMPSA also arranges PLAYING DAYS when members can meet each other and play in a variety of combinations. These events are held on three Sundays every year at the Pembroke School Music Centre.

ACMPSA welcomes players of all standards of proficiency, from reasonable amateur to near professional level, and school students are encouraged to join, and gain valuable ensemble experience. SACE music students can claim the time they spend as part of their practical component.
