Join us Monday, August 30 at 12 pm EDT for the next live broadcast of Spirited Conversations: Behind the Scores. Eavesdrop on Atlanta Master Chorale Artistic Director Eric Nelson and Dantes Rameau, CEO and co-founder of the Atlanta Music Project as they discuss how the Atlanta Music project is positively impacting the lives of young students.
Born in Ottawa, Canada, bassoonist Dantes Rameau has been Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of the Atlanta Music Project (AMP) since 2010. With a mission to empower underserved youth to realize their possibilities through music, AMP provides intensive, tuition-free music education to underserved youth right in their neighborhood. AMP’s youth orchestras and choirs perform over 40 concerts each year at venues across metropolitan Atlanta, from community centers to Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
A unique and compelling voice for social change through the arts, in 2010 Rameau was one of 25 groundbreaking creatives to be awarded $25,000 from AOL Artists’ 25For25 grant program. He was selected to Ebony Magazine’s 2013 Power 100, a list of the nation’s most influential African-Americans. He is also the recipient of the McGill University Alumni Association’s 2014 James G. Wright award, presented to young alumni who have demonstrated an exemplary commitment to service and made a difference in the community.
Rameau is a passionate teacher and also a gifted speaker on topics ranging from music education and non-profit management, to fundraising and community development through the arts.
This will be a live virtual interview, and guests will have an opportunity for Q&A following the session. The event is free to attend, but we are accepting donations.
