The AMA Red Tour has a long tradition of playing music at a high level. Since we have only 2 days of ensemble rehearsal time before our first performance, it is necessary for you to have your music ready BEFORE you arrive at our rehearsal at Kean University. The following materials will assist you in your preparation.
