AMS Student Recitals – Sunday, May 16
In compliance with Executive Order 204, we are staying as safe as possible and limited our capacity to 50% for recitals. We will only have a maximum of 10 students on each recital. As of now, we are planning on hosting our Spring Recitals in the Loft at Asheville Music School, but this could change to outdoors. We may announce a few virtual recitals if the need arises.

“We’re still being separate and safe, but at least we can toast the same wine together,” says AMS director Ryan Reardon.
