Promoting the Research and Performance 
of American Musics Since 1967

The AMRC hosts concerts, festivals, public talks, symposia (and more) with the community.  Learn about the activities and events coming soon.

Dozens of musical collection find home at the American Music Research Center at CU Boulder.  We invite you to learn what's in them, research the contents, and reconnect with its music.
