MITP represents transformation through music. A sense, a moral purpose and a passion through real action that uplifts the soul of Atlanta. Music provides a sense of vocation, moral call, a rage against injustice. Helping others is a meaningful part of life. Active engagement is all encompassing. It's easy to forget what's wrong in the world when music or an instrument is a small haven of creative joy for both a curious youngster and a seasoned musician.
MITP’s vision is expanding in 2020 to Berlin, Germany as well as Cuban exchange programs for young musicians. Additionally, we have partnered with Atlanta’s Food Banks for food giveaway programs for those in need.
MITP Fall Series:
September 29: Atlanta Streets Alive
October 18 & 19: 9th Annual MITP Festival in partnership with Atlanta Beltline
The annual Music In The Park (MITP) festival, for the first time in its history, will be a two-event/three-day Fall music showcase. The series kicks off September 29th, in association with Atlanta Streets Alive, with an extraordinary Sunday musical event spread all over the city, including highlighting the West End and the vibrancy of its close-knit, historic neighborhood. The weekend of October 18/19th, in partnership with Atlanta Beltline, blasts off the 9th Annual MITP Festival, where the North End will be poppin’. It’s all about the Music and our excitement at sharing the days with the greater Atlanta community.
MITP has made great strides since its inception in 2010. We are extremely appreciative of those who have supported us in the past. Over the past nine years we have had the gratification of engaging over 5000 students, presenting 400 professional musicians and delivering music to over 150,000 people. MITP is synonymous with artistic excellence, expanded creativity and free music. We are humbled and thrilled at what we have achieved and we’re excited that fall 2019 Music In The Park will be the best ever.
However, we need and appreciate your generous tax-deductible assistance to maintain our high-performance festival standards.
Our goal and accomplishment each year is two-fold: Encourage talented young musicians in the Atlanta area to pursue music performance, composition and production as a career/ and Provide opportunities for professional musicians to be a part of the vital process of nurturing emerging talent while also providing an opportunity for musicians to collaborate with each other and connect with their audiences. The marriage of emerging talent with musical mentors is what makes Music In the Park unique.
These goals speak directly to our Mission and Purpose: Enlighten young performers and inspire vibrancy in communities through music and performing arts. For both events, we will have up to 10 simultaneous stages to maximize the musical energy and community involvement.
Additionally, MITP offers a year-round series of master classes and workshops to provide students with access to significant artists coupled with an understanding of the musicianship they need to embrace to elevate their talent to the next level.
The result of our work and dedication is only made possible through the generous support of people like you. Please take a moment to make a tax-deductible gift to Music In the Park supporting our 2019 festival and ongoing programming. Visit our support page at musicintheparkatl.org and donate today.
