About Us

DC is the beneficiary of world-class music creatives who enrich and inspire millions of people around the world! In an effort to celebrate, honor, and uplift these creative heroes, The MusicianShip has undertaken the critical task of preserving The Wammie Awards. The Wammie Awards is our 33-year-old award show aimed at recognizing those very DC, MD, and VA area artists and musicians for their artistic works and impact across our region.  Since our acquisition of the Washington Area Music Association in 2018, we have since re-introduced this storied community event, upholding its values, while infusing it with meaningful innovations and a contemporary flair that includes, and enriches, a diverse audience of art enthusiasts. As a 501(c)(3), focused primarily on music education for underserved youth, The MusicianShip is excited to meld our mission with a mature community of stakeholders to uncover shared value around “Changing Lives with Music.”
