About AGMA


WE ARE AGMA: THE LABOR ORGANIZATION THAT REPRESENTS THE ARTISTS WHO CREATE AMERICA’S OPERATIC, CHORAL AND DANCE HERITAGE

Performing artists live to perform. But their talents, their skill and the beauty they create won’t necessarily pay the rent, put food on the table or guarantee the necessities of life. Without forceful advocacy and defense of their rights, artists may be vulnerable to exploitation or illegal discrimination. They need protection.

They can find it by joining AGMA, the American Guild of Musical Artists. For more information, please visit www.musicalartists.org.
