Last week, the Atlanta Music Project was invited to participate in an international orchestra festival, led by none other than Gustavo Dudamel, the 37-year-old Venezuelan hotshot conductor.
The trip to Mexico City marked the first time the AMP students had performed — or even traveled — abroad.
They performed in a special orchestra concert alongside 300 young musicians from around the Americas. Fresh from their landmark trip, AMP executive director and co-founder Dantes Rameau and 14-year-old violinist Donovan Fuller joined Lois Reitzes on “City Lights” to talk about their experience.
You can see photos and videos from their trip on the Atlanta Music Project’s Facebook page.
