We are Alameda Music Project!
The 2014-15 AMP season is underway!
On September 28th we began our first full year of programming. This year, in addition to the choir we have added a beginner violin class and a percussion ensemble. Alameda Music Project operates 4 days per week, providing on-site music instruction, snack and homework assistance to nearly 60 children at a Title 1 Arts Magnet school in the socioeconomically challenged West End of Alameda.
Voted "Best Arts Educator" By Rhythmix Cultural Works!
String Arcade raises funding for AMP!
The String Arcade is a well-curated collection of music arranged for string quartet by Dren McDonald (Ghost Recon Commander, Ravenwood Fair) and Jason Poss (Lord of the Rings film trilogy, World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King). The arrangements go far beyond chamber music emulations of the original themes, with each piece creatively interpreted, embellished, and re-imagined to capture emotions evoked by the games. In conceiving the project, McDonald was inspired by John Lurie’s Stranger Than Paradise film soundtrack (1984), which featured a moody, string quartet score.
