It is with pride, respect, and admiration that we will be awarding the staff and creators of the AMP program this year’s first ever “Visionary Award” at the CV Music Awards on Sunday, July 23 at the Riviera Resort in Palm Springs.

With music programs disappearing at an alarming rate in our schools, more and more every year, having the AMP program here in the desert has given our youth the opportunity to learn and perform music under the tutelage of an amazing staff/board of directors, teachers and creators that include:

Board of Directors: Roman Whittaker, Chairman of the Board; Kate Spates, Program Director; Cherise Sonderman, Administrative Director; Maria Wren, Director; Greg Vincent, Director; Ryan Wilson, Director; Clayton Baldwin, Director.


Staff: Bob Hamilton, Music Director; Will Sturgeon, Music Director; Camille Arujo, Community Relations.

A special shout out to Goldenvoice for supporting this venture from the beginning through the CVCT Trust.
