A Georgia Music Foundation Grant was awarded in 2017 to the Atlanta Music Project Summer Series, an annual three-week festival and school in the communities AMP serves. Open to all experienced middle and high school students studying choral and orchestral instruments, the Series features ensemble rehearsals, sectionals, master classes, theory, ear training and music composition. Based on the intensive summer music conservatory model, the festival also includes five free concerts featuring AMP Teaching Artists, guest performers, and AMP students. The camp takes place June 5 – June 23, 2017.
Founded in 2010, the Atlanta Music Project provides intensive, tuition-free music education for underserved youth right in their neighborhood. The Atlanta Music Project believes the pursuit of musical excellence leads to the development of confidence, creativity and ambition, thus sparking positive social change in the individuals and the communities that AMP serves.
