AMP also has a college and career program supporting AMP alumni. With a projected 2023-20224 annual operating budget of $2.9MM, AMP will serve over 500 young musicians.

AMP music ensembles perform more than 50 concerts annually, performing in venues all across Atlanta, from community centers to the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
