ACCMS “Live From New York” Concert to be held on May 5, 2024

ACCMS departed on Friday April 19th for NYC amid showers that could not dampen the singer’s enthusiasm in their April 22nd performance at Carnegie Hall in “A Soul Filled Journey,” works by composer Ola Gjeilo. The ACCMS singers joined choirs from California to New York to perform “The Twilight Mass” and “Ubi Caritas.” The Ashtabula community is invited to hear those pieces (and more) as the ACCMS, under the direction of Artistic Director Paul Shellhammer III, presents “Live from New York: Our Carnegie Hall Concert” at 4 pm on May 5th at St Peter’s Episcopal Church, 4901 Main Ave., Ashtabula, Ohio.

The concert is a Thank You to the Ashtabula community for their support of ACCMS at numerous fundraisers and concerts. Admission is free; donations are appreciated. Further information about ACCMS is available at the ACCMS Facebook page, on the website at, and at 440-645-0746.
