The most recent highlight was performing with 2 time billboard music award winner electronic violinist, and DWTS finalist, Lindsey Stirling. AMP’s relationship with Lindsey started 4 years ago. She learned of the investment AMP makes with youth in the metro Atlanta community and it resonated with her, reflecting on her personal experience. She said, “not everybody gets a chance to have music lessons or instruments to play.” So Lindsey teamed up with AMP to help support the mission. Lindsey designed two Lindsey ..read more
