The History of the German-American Musicians Association

The Semi-Centennial Program, 1983

In 1983 The German-American Musicians celebrated their 50th Anniversary. In honor of this monumental achievement, several members of the Association put together a history of the organization through a series of interviews with a few musicians that had been around for some of the earliest days of the Association.  This booklet has become a valuable record of the history of Germans and German Music in Buffalo, NY.

G.A.M. History Archives

Many of our Association members, and friends have sent in various pieces of history to us for our Archives. We have digitized some of these historical documents for public viewing. Our library is always evolving and we will add pieces of history as we come across them.
