From the venue:

Album listening party of the debut release from our Amplify ‘19 band and the premiere of our Summer JAMMS 2020 song & video.

In July 2019, eight musicians ages 15-20 from across the U.S. spent three weeks in Music In Common’s Amplify Summer Residency in western Massachusetts. During their three weeks living and working together, this diverse group of musicians learned, interpreted, performed, and recorded a collection of songs written by their youth peers from around the globe in the Music In Common JAMMS program. Amplify ‘19 is the fruits of their hard work and creative collaboration. JAMMS program is an intercultural immersion program that brings together youth from diverse backgrounds and at times communities in conflict to learn about each other’s differences and discover their common ground through facilitated dialogue and collaborative songwriting, multimedia, and performance.

This event will feature an album listening party of Amplify ‘19 as well as a Q&A with the Amplify ‘19 band members. It will also feature the premiere of the song and video produced in the Summer JAMMS 2020 sessions and a Q&A with the program’s participants.
