Hello friends and members of MAR-AMTA! 

The conference planning committee continues to be gearing up for an incredible 2022 conference in Harrisburg PA. We hope you will be joining us in person or virtually (2022 MAR-AMTA Registration

COVID-19 has impacted the availability of instrument vendors, so we are thinking OUTSIDE of Box! One of the things we enjoy at conferences is the opportunity to refresh or add to our supply of music instruments. With your support, we are organizing a table in the exhibit hall for you to bring, swap, and buy instruments. To support this project, please bring a bag of new instruments or instruments in very good condition to the conference that equals approximately $5, $10, $15, $20, $25, $30, $35, $40, or $45. 

Here are the guidelines for Swapping:

  1. Bring instrument/s to the MAR instruments table in the exhibit hall and register them with the attending person.

  2. Collect a coupon to exchange for one or more bags of an equal amount at some time during the conference
  1. All bags of instruments not exchanged/purchased need to be picked up by Saturday at 10 am. Otherwise, the bags will be donated.
