AFM Local 802 Continues Campaign to #SaveNYCMusic

This week, as part of the ongoing campaign to #SaveNYCMusic, 55 musicians and members of AFM Local 802 donated their time and talent to benefit the Musicians' Emergency Relief Fund. Check out their fantastic Broadway Brass Holiday 2020 performance on YouTube! Another Local 802 member has stepped up to offer a matching grant for the campaign in order to help reach the goal of $250,000 to provide emergency relief to musicians, address the health fund’s shortfall, and enhance 802's efforts to get musicians safely back to work, restoring the musical heart and soul of New York.
