Calling all musicians!!

Applications are now open for the American Music Abroad (AMA) program.

American Music Abroad is designed to communicate America’s rich musical contributions and diverse culture to the global music scene. Each year, approximately ten ensembles are selected to embark on month-long, multi-country tours, where they will engage with international audiences through public concerts, interactive performances with local musicians, lecture demonstrations, workshops, jam sessions and media interviews.

Monthly First Friday Lunches (FFLs)

Held the first Friday of every month, these informal lunches are a chance to network and socialize with your peers, as well as discuss issues affecting young arts professionals in DC. Lunches are held in different neighborhoods throughout the city each month. At least two members of the EALDC Steering Committee are always present to answer any questions about the organization and talk about upcoming events.

Some past First Friday Lunches have been held at Mai Thai, Founding Farmers, Cafe Asia, Commissary, Five Guys, Lincoln, and Raku. Registration for FFLs is hosted at EventBrite.
