Ames Town and Gown Association
In Ames, Iowa, the Ames Town and Gown Chamber Music Association hosts outstanding artists who give world-class performances in intimate settings, and who also interact with our community, especially with our young people.

In order to further enrich our community, and to build the audiences of the future, we frequently offer additional activities that bring our artists into contact with students. Iowa State University often sponsors the artists in college master classes, as well. QuinTango performed for nearly 600 elementary students in Perry. Ames Town & Gown partnered with the Ames Public Library to present The Rose Ensemble in an informal workshop, the Cavani Quartet made an appearance at the Marshalltown Veterans Home.

The Ames Town & Gown Chamber Music Association brings great music to all of us-both the City of Ames and the academic community. In this spirit, Town and Gown presents chamber music in two venues: the newly refurbished and re-named Martha-Ellen Tye Recital Hall in Iowa State University's Music Building, and the handsomely restored City Auditorium at Ames City Hall, which allows nearly three times as many people to enjoy concerts in a convenient downtown location. In either hall, the audience hears great music performed by outstanding musicians in a setting well-suited to chamber music.
