What We Do

Amherst Glebe Arts Response, Inc. (AGAR) is an arts and humanities nonprofit organization in Amherst County that features both a chamber and a jazz music series. AGAR also presents programs in literary arts and media. AGAR's humanities program has interviewed over 135 individuals and made documentaries about schooling in Amherst County 1916-1975.

Our greatest need is for funding to pay artist fees to the musicians and poets who bring to life our chamber music, jazz concerts, poetry writing and music workshops for and with students of all ages. We also provide classes in music, art and poetry for students and for senior individuals receiving meals at home.

Interesting Info

We've presented a chamber music series in Amherst since 2012 and added a jazz series in 2019.
AGAR has brought the Artistic Director of Opera Roanoke, the Poet Laureate of Virginia, and a Hidden Jewish Child from WWII Hungary to Amherst County schools.
AGAR would love to commission an important work by a local Virginia Creative artist in music, poetry or theatre every two years.
