STATEMENT ON CORONAVIRUS:

AGMA is aware of the major effects resonating in the performance sector regarding the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. We are deeply saddened that it is resulting in loss of work and moneys due to theatre closures and travel restrictions. We know that many of our artists, especially soloists, travel extensively and have been affected by this crisis.

Any AGMA member in good standing is entitled and encouraged to apply for financial assistance through the AGMA Relief Fund. Grants are awarded on a case-by-case basis, based on need.

The AGMA Relief Fund depends on the generosity of many to assist our members in need. If you would like to donate, please click the PayPal button below, or contact AGMA directly. Please note in the memo/note field, or over the phone, that your donation is to benefit those affected by the coronavirus.* 95% percent of funds go directly to financial aid for AGMA colleagues in times of crisis.
