Ensembles 2016

From Folk to Hip Hop, AMA 2016-2017 Bands

We are pleased to announce the touring bands for the 2016-2017 season of American Music Abroad! The selected bands represent a wide range of genres, backgrounds and geographical regions:

These final bands were chosen through a vigorous application and audition process. The AMA judging panel, which represented musical talent from around the country, selected 45 bands to audition live from an application pool of nearly 300 ensembles. From the 45 chosen to live audition, the finalists were selected not only for their immense musical talent, but also for their engaging educational programming, which they will be sharing with international audiences as part of their tour.

Stay up-to-date on each tour by following us on Facebook  and by using the hashtag #ExchangeOurWorld
