The Atlanta Music Project is pleased to announce that our co-founder & executive director Dantes Rameau was recently awarded the 2019 Luminary Award for Arts Education from ArtsATL.org. The award was presented to Dantes by Lisa Cremin, Director of Community Advancement at the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta. Taking place at City Winery in Midtown, the award ceremony was attended by Atlanta artists, philanthropists and arts aficionados.

It was a special night for AMP as our Senior Youth Orchestra (sponsored by Cricket Wireless) was invited to perform for the event. Led by conductor Logan Souther, AMP young artists premiered an original work for strings and woodwinds by Nashville-based composer Nicole Neely, commissioned specifically for the occasion.
