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!
