For New Members

The American Guild of Musical Artists, AFL-CIO is the labor union that represents opera and concert singers, production personnel and dancers at principal opera, concert and dance companies throughout the United States.

By becoming a member of AGMA, you join in the long tradition of artists throughout the United States and abroad who have recognized the inherent value of having a union negotiate their agreements, and pursue their workplace concerns, while they spend their time perfecting their craft.

In addition to improving contractual provisions for wages, hours and terms and conditions of employment, we strive to expand protection of health and safety concerns, including the elimination of hazardous workplace conditions. Additionally, we are always available to assist you in any way necessary to protect your contractual professional and legal rights.

We solicit and welcome your participation in AGMA’s activities and encourage you to play an active role in the governance of your union.
