Asian Musical Voices of America (AMVA) is devoted to community-building and activism for transformational change.
Together, We build community among self-identified Asian Americans working and creating in classical music. We educate ourselves on the ways structural racism is present in classical music. We engage in activism to dismantle structural racism, promote equity, and lift up BIPOC musical voices working and creating within the field.
