About the ASA

Welcome to the American Songbook Association Inc.

The American Songbook Association is an arts and educational nonprofit dedicated to stimulating and promoting public interest in the legacy of American song. Through the talents of composers, lyricists, singers, music directors, arrangers, and other creatives, America has given this gift to the world. The music and songs of our heritage are known, sung, recorded, performed and prized in every corner of the globe.

The American Songbook Association is committed to preserving and promoting this living legacy in the history and the development of the many genres that comprise it, from cabaret, popular song, musical theater, jazz, film, light opera, and more. The appreciation of the impact our musical culture continues to have on a global audience is the engine that drives us.

Please join American Songbook Association as we collect, preserve, exhibit and interpret a growing archive of song, and those who created and sustain its lifeblood.

Mission Statement

We strive to inspire, transform, empower and create torchbearers for future generations so they may understand, appreciate and embrace the historical and cultural importance of America’s rich musical heritage.
