Greetings, IAMM community!

You are IAMM and what a remarkable group of people you are! Since IAMM’s newly-elected Board of Directors and Executive Committee took office in late May, IAMM2020 has brought together an incredible showcase of events and offerings.

To those of you who presented live-streamed lectures at the IAMM2020 Online Conference,

To those of you who prepared music for the IAMM Tenth Anniversary Concert and Conference,

To those of you who created “Music is…” for virtual choir and ensemble,

To those of you who recorded papers and posters for IAMM2020,

To those of you who participated in Special Interest Groups and IAMM’s Summer Webinar Series,

To those of you who led workshops and discussions for IAMM Insights,

To those of you who edit, review, publish, and manage IAMM’s official journal, Music & Medicine,

To those of you (especially Samuel Gracida) who are managing our evolving website and online presence,

To those of you who serve on IAMM committees, workgroups, and Task Forces,

To those of you who are designing IAMM2021,
