Access Contemporary Music (ACM) is a non profit organization dedicated to integrating musical creativity into everyday life.  ACM has partnered with several cities in the Open House Worldwide program including New York, Chicago, Helsinki, Barcelona and, most recently, Milwaukee, to create custom music for the spaces and have musicians perform the music in the spaces on the day of the event.  ACM’s global composer membership program is where all of this wonderful new music comes from.

The United Performing Arts Fund (UPAF) has been setting the stage for more than 50 years by providing critical investment in our region’s vibrant performing arts scene. Since its inception, UPAF has raised over $300 million for the performing arts. UPAF funding is critical to the sustainability of these community treasures and allows them to focus on what they do best: creating, performing, inspiring and educating.
