25 years loud! Plans revealed for the AMS anniversary celebrations

Various Academy of Music and Sound centres around the UK, including Exeter, Glasgow and Gateshead have revealed their plans for the celebrations of AMS’ 25 years in music education.

There will be music showcases from students and some our favourite bands, like Devon based up-and-comers Pattern Pusher, plus another festival stage, and an array of events at our Exeter hub including masterclasses and artist Q&As.

AMS Exeter have released a statement with exciting plans for a showcase event later in the month:

“We’re celebrating being 25 with a banger of a showcase performance involving past and current students from our Rock Club, Level 3 Music Diplomas, Foundation and BA Honours degrees and our new Masters degree.

This is an ideal time to see and hear what we do while enjoying a great evening of funk, rock, blues and originals with our favourite band Pattern Pusher headlining the evening’s gig.

There will also be music industry focused talks, masterclasses and Q&A Sessions during the day, music from our singer songwriters in the café bar and tracks from our DJ’s on the decks in the evening.

If you’re interested in taking a music course or just want a fab evening out, come along!

Tickets for the event include the day time expo AND the evening gig and are available from the Exeter Phoenix box office or the AMS centre in Coombe Street. Tickets for the event include the day time expo AND the evening gig. The full line up will be announced soon.”

“It’s going to be madness! The Academy of Music and Sound Exeter has played a ginormous role in our lives personally and as the band, this is going to be special! 🌞
