We’re starting an A Capella Club! Directed by AMS teacher Hillary Trumpler, with student co-director Molly Rose. The club will meet on Tuesdays from 7:00-8:30pm. We’re looking for all voice types, male and female, in grades 9-12.
Auditions are on September 12. Singers should prepare an a capella verse and chorus of any song. You will be asked to vocalize and sing patterns, but you will not be required to read music.

We are happy to be continuing our partnership with Barnaroo Music Festival, held September 29-October 1 at Franny’s Farm in Leicester, NC. The lineup includes our own AMS Rock Band, Minør, as well as Southern Culture On The Skids, Holy Ghost Tent Revival, Parker Gispert (of The Whigs), Shake It Like A Caveman, and much more. A portion of the proceeds goes to benefit AMS programs!
Volunteers get free entry into the festival, and Barnaroo donates even more money to AMS based on how many volunteer hours we provide. So, if you’re reading this, please consider volunteering at this super fun local music festival! Here is the link- ASHEVILLEBARNAROO.COM

Our summer camps are off to a great start! Jazz Camp was last week, and Rock Camp just got started. It was awesome to hear how much progress the jazzers were able to make after only 5 days! Jason Moore’s superb teaching skills must have had something to do with that.
