Since 1967, the American Music Research Center (AMRC) is dedicated to exploring and celebrating the diverse and rich traditions of American music. Jointly housed between the the University of Colorado’s College of Music and the University Libraries, the AMRC is home to a rare music repository that includes scores, papers, recordings and material artifacts that document the history of American music and the people who have made it.

The AMRC further sponsors public events and outreach activities—concerts, conferences, publications and lectures, all based on AMRC collections—and provides research grants to support institutionally-affiliated and independent scholars.
