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. Our program runs 4 days per week, providing music instruction, snack and homework time to almost seventy children at a Title 1 Arts Magnet school.
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 reimagined 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.
