Norcal American Musicological Society

An active AMS chapter is a crucial outlet for sharing our research and growing our community.


The AMS Northern California Chapter holds two meetings annually, publishes a chapter e-newsletter of northern California musicology news, and administers the Ingolf Dahl Award biennially.

Call for Nominations

Currently our President and Vice-President are outgoing. Nominations for either office can be sent to the Secretary-Treasurer in advance of our February 2017 Meeting, when we will hold elections.

Chapter Dues

Annual chapter dues are voluntary: all AMS members within the chapter boundaries are automatically members of the chapter, so don't forget to pay your AMS national dues! Suggested annual dues of $15.00 can be submitted via Paypal to AMSNorthCal(at)gmail(dot)com, specifying "Chapter Dues" in the message; dues can also be paid in person at our meetings, or by contacting our Secretary-Treasurer.


We welcome your comments, questions, and ideas. You can contact any of the officers directly.
