BlackRock hosts AMP Students in Afternoon of Music & Mentorship
Our young musicians love to perform and we love to introduce them to our passionate supporters, many of whom are professionals from a variety of fields. Every month, the Atlanta Music Project holds “Practice Makes Professional” events hosting groups of professionals at the AMP Center for Performance & Education.
This time, however, we switched things up and our students visited the professionals onsite for an afternoon of music, professional exchange and mentorship. The idea is for accomplished professionals to serve as an inspiration to our young musicians, encouraging them to continue to work hard and aim high. As we all know, Practice Makes Professional, in music and in life!
Led by BlackRock Project Manager and AMP Board Secretary Racheal Woods, BlackRock hosted our students at their Atlanta office. BlackRock is one of the world’s preeminent asset management firms and a premier provider of investment management. A huge shout out to BlackRock, Racheal, and the company band, the Smashing Peaches, for hosting us and welcoming our students into their space!
BlackRock PANEL DISCUSSION AND Q&A
Racheal Woods led an informative panel discussion with her BlackRock colleagues focused on different career paths to BlackRock, the world of finance and economics, and how music studies can prepare students for diverse careers. There was a Q&A and also an opportunity for our students to network and make connections with the BlackRock staff.
AMP MUSICIANS PERFORM
Along with an informative panel discussion and networking, there were also performances; Jessica Macharia, soprano, Neilah Bell, soprano, and Destiny Sutton, alto – all members of the AMP Academy – performed solo pieces for the BlackRock staff. Also, our AMP Senior Youth Orchestra, conducted by Logan Souther, performed Adoration by Florence Price and Treasure by Bruno Mars.
