BREAKING NEWS! AMP Committee announces camp will be FREE OF COST for any student who is accepted into the program. Value of $1500. Register for May 2 open call at www.cvcommunitytrust.org/AMP
Coachella Valley Community Trust (CVCT) announced it will hold the second Open Call on Saturday, May 2, for youth interested in participating in the new Academy of Musical Performance (AMP). Youth who will be completing 6th through 11th grades at the end of June 2015 are invited to perform to be considered for acceptance into the summer program.
“This is a unique program available to our area youth. We had such a positive turnout and exceptional interest at our first Open Call, we are excited to offer the second and final open call for the 2015 summer program,” said Kate Spates, CVCT Board Member and Dean of Promotions for AMP.
Academy of Musical Performance is made possible with a grant from Goldenvoice, and is designed to advance the musical abilities of participants. It is a summer camp for students who know the basics of instrumentation and vocals and are eager to perform on stage. It also affords the opportunity for those interested in stage production, audio and visual production, event management and promotion to become involved in those aspects of the program.
On May 2, 2015 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., youth musicians and performers are invited to the open call, which will take place at the Indio Performing Arts Center (IPAC). Interested students are encouraged to pre-register for the open call online at https://www.cvcommunitytrust.org/AMP. They may also register in person at the open call, but online pre-registered students will take priority.
A total of 40 students across each of the music, production and promotion aspects of the program will be accepted. Tuition is $1500 per student and includes lunch and snacks for each day of the program. Scholarships are available to those in need. Music and vocal instructors will also be needed and are encouraged to contact CVCT. Applications for the production and promotion aspects of the program are now being accepted online.
AMP will run four weeks from June 29 through July 24, 2015, taking place at IPAC Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. A public concert performance on July 25, 2015 will showcase the talented abilities of the students.
