Last year a coalition of arts organizations was formed with the focus to educate, inform, and inspire public action supporting the fiscal vitality, stewardship, and growth of Asheville’s and Buncombe County’s creative sector. On February 6th we would like to invite you to the Arts Awareness Social to get to know the organizations behind the coalition and learn what they are doing to share the way the arts are positively impacting our community. Special presentations by BMCM+AC, Word on the Street, and Asheville Music School. This event is free and open to the public.
Meet the band! The Last City is an Orchestral Folk Rock band in Dallas, TX, combining classical instrumentation with indie rock arrangements and pop melodies. They are touring through Asheville and are coming to AMS to talk about being in a band, touring, and recording. TEACHERS – tell your students!
The world music ensemble is a group open to all student musicians, of any instrument, ages 7 and up, and skill-level combination. Bring your own instrument.
Students will expand their minds by learning music from many different global traditions, as well as learning the cultural and historical significances behind the music. Band members will learn by reading and by ear, and all will have the chance to improvise.
We had a truly fantastic evening at our first ever dinner fundraiser w/ celebrity cook Jeff “Rhino” Bannister. We raised almost $2,000 for AMS programs, which will help us keep music education affordable, and keep music educators in business. Big thanks to everyone who came to support, and to everyone that volunteered their time to the event.
On Wednesday, November 7, 6-9 p.m., District Wine Bar and celebrity grillmaster Jeff “Rhino” Bannister are teaming up for an evening of authentic Spanish food and wine to support Asheville Music School.
