Vancouver Adapted Music Society supports and promotes musicians with physical disabilities in the Metro Vancouver area.

We operate Canada’s only fully-accessible recording studio, release CDs, create music videos, and promote concerts. Formed in 1988 by two musicians with high-level disabilities, VAMS shows that disability is not a barrier to creativity. Accessibility is central to everything we do. Participants explore and discover music and their own capabilities.

The Disability Foundation and its affiliated societies comply with COVID-19 protocols as determined by the provincial health authorities (e.g., BC: https://www.worksafebc.com/en/covid-19). Our workers and volunteers will follow such protocols and must be vaccinated to work with and within our organizations (offices, program locations, and home visits), unless a medical exemption is in place. To protect our workers and volunteers, we expect our clients and partners to comply with COVID-19 health and safety regulations which means fully vaccinated unless there is a medical exemption. 

Thank you for making everyone’s health and safety the top priority.
