Your backing of AMP is part of something bigger!

Dear Backers of the Atlanta Music Project,

Thank you for your pledges! Yes, your pledge will help us launch a music for social change program right here in Atlanta. But on an even bigger level, the Atlanta Music Project is part of a growing movement of El Sistema-inspired programs emerging all over the world, especially in the United States.

Today the Boston Globe started a series of articles on this movement. It is a well-written piece by Jeremy Eichler, the Boston Globe music critic, who spent a week with the Abreu Fellows while we were in Venezuela. As you'll see when you read the article, with your pledge, you are not only helping to plant seeds of hope for many youths in Atlanta but also supporting the Atlanta Music Project as part of a world-wide movement. So thank you and welcome to a movement that's gaining momentum everyday with your help!

Please don't forget to help spread the word about our Kickstarter fundraiser by email, Facebook and Twitter. We'll need at least 300 backers to reach our goal of $15,000!
