Special Events

AMSF special events provide members educational opportunities to improve their understanding of music and appreciation of music. Our goal is to help amateur musicians grow in their abilities to perform. Such progress is brought about not only by opportunities to perform, but by an increased understanding of music theory, techniques, genres, history, cultural connections, and broad exposure to new experiences.

We host in-person and online events featuring guest lecturers and musicians, some of whom are world-class performers. Our guest lecturers discuss a wide variety of topics and perform pieces to demonstrate specific techniques, historical and cultural connections, and inspire.

Please see the AMSF Calendar for upcoming Special Events. All AMSF members are welcome to attend. Registration is required. Please register with the Coordinator, Michelle Powell, through the Evites sent to members in monthly emails.

Like all other AMSF in-person events, vaccination is required.
