3rd Annual Accidental Music Festival Marathon!

Accidental Music Festival’s Marathon AMF celebrates the emergence of Orlando as a hotbed of contemporary classical and creative music on May 12th. Featuring 13 ensembles and soloists performing a day-long concert of music almost exclusively by living composers at the SoDo Shopping Center, the event seeks to highlight the work of new and established groups dedicated to new music. This year there will also be family-friendly events during the day, including acoustic and electronic instrument petting zoos, where kids of all ages can test out instruments and learn about making electronic music.
