The Musical Protective Association of Denver was formed in 1890. In 1897, Local 20 was chartered by the American Federation of Musicians. The name was later changed to Denver Musicians Association.
Today, the 650+ professional musicians of Local 20-623 live and work in parts of Colorado, Wyoming, and Utah. Through the combined efforts and resources of our members, the Denver Musicians Association is committed to raising industry standards and positioning professional musicians in the foreground of the cultural landscape.
