Background: Join us at a free virtual conference — connecting music communities and organizations and sharing what they are trying to co-create for 2021 and beyond. Last April, 30+ organizations and 90+ speakers collaborated to create the virtual conference Amplify Music 2020, exploring what was happening locally around the world in music communities early in the COVID-19 crisis.

We’re bringing together 45+ organizations and more than 100+ speakers April 21-23 . . . plus creating pre-recorded Community Sessions in cities and regions around the world that will continue through the fall.
