About

The American Music Research Center

~Collecting and celebrating American music since 1967~

The American Music Research Center (AMRC) is a rare music repository dedicated to exploring and celebrating the rich traditions of American music. We are a joint venture between the University Libraries and the College of Music devoted to discovering, sharing, and preserving American music of all kinds: classical, popular, and traditional. As a repository of precious and unique music materials, the AMRC seeks to preserve American music and enhance its cultural and transformational potential for future generations. Our collections are housed and curated in the University Libraries on the CU Boulder campus where students, visiting scholars, and the public are welcome to visit by appointment. We regularly sponsor public events and community outreach activities such as concerts, conferences, publications, and lectures--all based on the AMRC collections.
