A Partnership With Friends of Chamber Music-Kansas City

Founded in Berlin in 1982 and recognized today as one of the world’s leading chamber orchestras, the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, or Akamus, enjoys an unprecedented history of success. The ensemble, which performs regularly in Europe's leading musical centers, has toured Asia, North America and South America.

For the co-presentation of Akamus between the PAS and Friends of Chamber Music-Kansas City, the program is "Foreign Affairs – Characters of the Baroque," exploring the richness of the familiar and the foreign in culture through the means of music, sometimes exotic, sometimes ironic, but always diverting and highly musical.
