General Music Information
GAMP is organized into the vocal and instrumental departments. However, our school is unique in that students may participate in any of our performing ensembles, allowing them to become well-rounded and experienced musicians.
Participation in GAMP’s annual Winter and Spring concerts is mandatory. The concerts are the culmination and performance of the music that students have been studying during the school year. Unexcused absence from any concert results in a failure for choir for the 2nd or 4th marking period.
In addition to our wide offering of performance ensembles, students may audition for the District 12 chorus, band, or orchestra, which is sponsored through the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association.
We are proud to hold several partnerships with professional organizations who visit our school regularly for workshops, master classes, and live performances with our students. Some of these groups include Astral Artists, the Marian Anderson Historical Society, the Philly Pops, the Pennsylvania Ballet Company, the Philadelphia Clef Club of Jazz, and Temple University’s Boyer College of Music.
