My query is suppose to search for "Music" in the fields strEventAbstrace or strEventType within the specified date range but it returns records where strEventAbstrace or strEventType contains "Music" from all dates. What am I doing wrong?

SELECT 
      intEventID
     ,dtmEventDateAndTime AS Date
     ,dtmEventDateAndTime AS Time
     ,strEventAbstract AS [Event Description],"
     ,tEventTypes.strEventType AS [Event Type]
     ,strIsOnsite AS [On Campus]
     ,strTransportationProvided AS Transprotation,monCost AS Cost
FROM tEvents
   "INNER JOIN tEventTypes 
      ON tEvents.intEventTypeID = tEventTypes.intEventTypeID
WHERE      strEventAbstract LIKE '%Music%' 
       OR  strEventType Like '%Music%'
       AND dtmEventDateAndTime >= '08/30/2016’ 
       AND dtmEventDateAndTime <= '09/13/2016’ 
ORDER BY dtmEventDateAndTime

You need parentheses:

SELECT
      intEventID
     ,dtmEventDateAndTime AS Date
     ,dtmEventDateAndTime AS Time
     ,strEventAbstract AS [Event Description],"
     ,tEventTypes.strEventType AS [Event Type]
     ,strIsOnsite AS [On Campus]
     ,strTransportationProvided AS Transprotation,monCost AS Cost
FROM tEvents
   "INNER JOIN tEventTypes
      ON tEvents.intEventTypeID = tEventTypes.intEventTypeID
WHERE      (strEventAbstract LIKE '%Music%'
       OR  strEventType Like '%Music%')
       AND (dtmEventDateAndTime >= '08/30/2016’
       AND dtmEventDateAndTime <= '09/13/2016’)
ORDER BY dtmEventDateAndTime

Also, there are double quotes in your query. Not sure if that is intentional.
SELECT 
      intEventID
     ,dtmEventDateAndTime AS Date
     ,dtmEventDateAndTime AS Time
     ,strEventAbstract AS [Event Description]
     ,tEventTypes.strEventType AS [Event Type]
     ,strIsOnsite AS [On Campus]
     ,strTransportationProvided AS Transprotation,monCost AS Cost
FROM tEvents
   INNER JOIN tEventTypes 
      ON tEvents.intEventTypeID = tEventTypes.intEventTypeID
WHERE     (strEventAbstract LIKE '%Music%' 
       OR  strEventType Like '%Music%')
       AND dtmEventDateAndTime >= '20160830' 
       AND dtmEventDateAndTime <= '20160913'
ORDER BY dtmEventDateAndTime
