American Music Abroad

American Music Abroad artists represent the new generation of musical ambassadors, reaching beyond concert halls to interact with other musicians and citizens around the globe. Approximately 10 ensembles of American music in different genres are selected each year to embark on a two- to three-week long, multi-country tour, where they engage with international audiences and artists through public concerts, performances and collaborations with local musicians, lectures and demonstrations, workshops, jam sessions, and media interviews. AMA programs often focus on younger and underserved audiences, with little or no access to American music. All musical genres are welcome to apply. Applications open 10.30.23, due 1.29.24.
