About This Project

The Madison Area Music Association is a 501( c )(3) nonprofit organization that presents the annual Madison Area Music Awards (MAMAs).  The mission of the MAMAs is to provide musical instruments and music program funding for Dane County area youths in order to foster the next generation of artists. We work with public school systems, community centers, private instruction facilities, other community groups and individuals. Our efforts are making a big difference in the lives of Dane County youths and at the same time we are enriching the community by promoting local music.
The annual awards show is a year-long process that recognizes music professionals in the community with a Grammy-style event that features live performances and award presentations. We also highlight the organization’s mission by presenting youth performers, student and teacher of the year awards and awards for songwriting, performance and instrumental excellence in several youth categories. The MAMAs recognizes talent over eighteen different genres and strives for multicultural diversity. People who attend the awards show are blown away by its professionalism and by the local talent on display. It is truly Madison's Grammys, red carpet and all. Check out the video link above and watch the high school girls a capella group Midnight Voices perform at our event.
We are in need of funding for production costs for the annual awards show. $5,000 will help cover the Capitol Theater stage labor costs for our event. 
Your tax-deductible gift will help ensure that the next Mozart or Paul McCartney gets a chance to get the tools they need to get started; tools they would otherwise not have access to or could not afford. for more information.
