Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Workshop @ AMP

On Wednesday April 20, 2011 two amazing musicians from the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra came to AMP to work with our students. Justin Bruns, Assistant Concertmaster and Catherine Lynn, violist, coached some of our violin and viola players.

Here’s are two pictures of Mr. Bruns working with violins on the Largo from Dvorak’s New World Symphony:

Here’s a short video of Ms. Lynn working with the violas on the Ode To Joy from Beethoven’s 9th Symphony:

You can watch the Atlanta Music Project Youth Orchestra and Choir in concert on Tuesday May 3, 2011 at 7:00pm on the top floor of the W Atlanta Midtown. More info and tickets here: www.ampataltitude.eventbrite.com

  1. […] Not surprisingly, major orchestras have pondered their role in regard to El Sistema. The LA Philharmonic swept in with the first major U.S. El Sistema initiative in 2008 to “build youth orchestras in communities throughout Los Angeles,” as Gustavo Dudamel prepared to become its conductor. The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra followed with its OrchKids program, which provides in- and after-school music appreciation and instrumental learning opportunities to Baltimore City children. Other orchestras have opted out of starting El Sistema for various reasons. As Cayenne Harris, Director of Learning and Access Initiatives at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra explained, the CSO orchestra management spent numerous hours discussing what the CSO’s role might be in offering El Sistema, but ultimately decided that the CSO was not the right host for an El Sistema program. Instead, they looked to other ways that they could be more helpful in supporting the movement: for example, by hosting a Festival of Youth in Music that brings together multiple organizations who may never have had the opportunity to collaborate around the theme of music for social change. For more information on the CSO response to El Sistema, download the PowerPoint presentation entitled “A Distinct Approach” here. Other orchestras have developed partnerships to support the movement, such as the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra’s collaboration with The Atlanta Music Project. […]
