Today was the first ever day of the Atlanta Music Project @ Gilbert House Summer Program! We have doubled our number of participants to 40, with many more on the waiting list. These students will be getting an amazing summer day camp experience: three hours of “El Sistema-style” music instruction every day, plus arts and crafts, swimming, soccer, movies and field trip. In addition they will perform two concerts. The summer program culminates with an orchestra performance on the last day of camp (DATE TBA soon). It’ll be really exciting to see how far these kids go in only eight weeks, since for a little more than half of them, they got their first chance to try out orchestral instruments…today! Thank you to our wonderful AMP Music Mentors for coming out this morning. Here are some pics:
