American Guild of Musical Artists Asks Biden/Harris For Relief

American Guild of Musical Artists (AGMA) President Ray Menard wrote a letter to the United States President Biden and Vice President Harris, asking for much needed relief in the performing arts industry

AGMA is a labor union of professional singers, dancers, and stage staff in opera, choral performance, and concert dance.

Much like conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin did in his letter last week, Menard asks for an Arts and Culture leader to be added to Biden's Cabinet.

"Our narrative hasn’t changed since the onset of the pandemic: we need help, and we need it now," Menard said. "One of the saddest realities of the last year has been that government did not consider the Arts 'essential.'"

"The Performing Arts in the United States are a vital part of our economy and our identity and will be an essential part of our recovery and healing process as time progresses. We've seen the Arts work its magic before and, if we invest in relief for this industry and the working Artists that make it run, we will see it again."
