Asheville Music School

6:00PM

Launched in 1996 as a community-based business, Asheville Music School transitioned into nonprofit status in 2012 and relocated to Pack Square. AMS currently has an enrollment of nearly 400 students of all skill levels who study a variety of instruments in private and group lessons, summer camps, ensembles and workshops. The 37 members of the AMS music faculty are all professional music educators and teaching artists.

The mission of AMS is strengthening Western North Carolina communities through music education and outreach. Through the Paul Thorpe Music Education Fund, created in 2012 in honor of the late director of the school, AMS has awarded more than $40,000 in scholarships to local youth and adults who are unable to afford music instruction and instruments. The Sound Education Outreach Program is comprised of youth and adult ensembles that perform free of charge for youth, seniors and people living with disabilities at community sites.

Tickets to the event are $15 in advance and $18 at the door; $7 for children under 12; and free for ages 2 and younger.  Attendees are encouraged to enjoy fine dining at Isis prior to the show; a portion of dinner sales will be donated to AMS.
