The Launch of the Atlanta Music Project Youth Choirs & Orchestras

AMP Logo_final-1 2The Atlanta Music Project is pleased to announce the launch of the Atlanta Music Project Youth Choirs, sponsored by Cricket Wireless, for the fall of 2018.

Open to all students from anywhere, the AMP Youth Choirs are the most advanced vocal ensembles at AMP and are designed for music students who are already proficient singers.

Performing both standard and world choral literature, it is AMP’s goal for the AMP Youth Choirs to become one of the top youth training choir programs in the country.

Admittance to the AMP Youth Choirs is granted through a competitive audition process only, which is held each year in late August/early September. Students who accept an invitation to join the AMP Youth Choir must commit to attending for the entire school year.

All AMP Youth Choir members will receive:

  • Choir Folder
  • Concert Attire

The AMP Youth Choirs are tuition-free, but there is a $25 registration fee ($10 for siblings) for each semester. Payment plans are available.

For all rehearsals and concerts, AMP will provide shuttle service to and from Oakland City MARTA Station.

All AMP Youth Choir rehearsals and concerts take place at Sylvan Hills Middle School located at 1461 Sylvan Road SW Atlanta, GA 30310

AMP Youth Choir auditions will take place at the South Bend Center located at 1955 Compton Drive SE Atlanta, GA 30315. Auditions slots are assigned on a first come first serve basis, as applications are received. Apply to audition for the AMP Youth Choirs here.
