This week our 2013 Spring Concert season comes to a close with our Gilbert House-South Bend Orchestra! The performance venue is the fabulous Altitude Room on the 27th floor of the W Atlanta Midtown Hotel. For those of you who remember, we closed our inaugural season, 2010-2011, at Altitude as well.

We are so fortunate to have the W Atlanta Midtown as a partner and collaborator. The W has been a consistent supporter of the Atlanta Music Project since our very first days, offering concert space, providing accommodations for guest artists and even sending their employees to help with our instrument donation drive.

Altitude sits high above Midtown Atlanta, with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Piedmont Park on one side and Midtown Atlanta on the other. The views definitely make you feel as if you are at altitude. Our hard-working students will really enjoy performing at the W.

The 2013AMP at Altitude Spring Concert will take place on Sunday May 19 at 2:30. The concert will feature our Gilbert House-South Bend Orchestra led by AMP Conductor, Christopher Thibdeau. The concert will feature the music of the masters: Vivaldi’s Winter, Tchaikovsky’s 1812, Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, and more!

Our Gilbert House-South Bend Orchestra students have each put in over 300 hours of after-school practice time with AMP (that doesn’t count individual practice time at home), so they can’t wait to show off what they’ve been working on.

Tickets are not required and the event is free, however donations are encouraged and appreciated. AMP offers its programming free-of-charge to all participants so every bit of support we receive goes a long way.

A reception with cookies and lemonade will follow the concert. More info on the concert is available on our orchestral concert page. See you  Sunday at 2:30pm for AMP at Altitude II!
