From the press release:

The ACMI is a pioneering initiative aimed at fostering awareness and appreciation of Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander (AAAPI) classical music composers. Through a series of enriching concerts and thought-provoking conferences, ACMI seeks to illuminate the contributions of AAAPI composers while providing a platform for dialogue and exchange within the global classical music community.

ACMI  is dedicated to the promotion and presentation of AAAPI classical music, serving as a dynamic forum for the advancement, dissemination, and interchange of AAAPI music on an international scale. Since its inception in 2022, ACMI conferences have successfully convened in Kansas and New Jersey, attracting over 100 participants each year.

Building upon this momentum, the 2024 ACMI International Conference promises to be a landmark event, bringing together renowned scholars, composers, performers, and music enthusiasts from across the globe. Distinguished figures such as Dr. Chinary Ung, Dr. Texu Kim, Dr. Huang Ruo and Dr. Leilehua Lanzilotti, Del Sol Quartet will lend their expertise and insights to the conference, enriching discussions and performances with their profound knowledge and experience.
