AMIS loves musical instruments and the music that they create. Music brings people together across all barriers and boundaries and helps to create community. However, during this unusual time of the spread of the global pandemic of the Corona Virus, music must bring us together virtually. Most of the typical events this calendar lists: international conferences, museum programs, and other concerts are cancelled or postponed. Yet creative people are finding new ways to present content online. This calendar will list some events that are of interest to musical instrument lovers that can be found online during the month of April 2020. Check back for updates throughout the month!
