First symphony orchestra to join forces with AMP
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Sept. 8, 2014) — The Lexington Philharmonic is the nation’s first symphony orchestra to join forces with the National Association of Music Parents as an educational partner, L. Scott McCormick, founder and president of AMP, announced on Monday.
Highlighting the partnership will be a 20 percent ticket discount to all members of AMP, regardless if they live in Kentucky or elsewhere.
“We applaud the Lexington Philharmonic for its recognition of the important role parents play in the life cycle of our young musicians’ lives,” said McCormick. “By becoming a strategic partner with AMP, the Lexington Philharmonic has demonstrated its commitment to music education and has planted a seed for other symphony orchestras and professional music organizations to follow.”

LexPhil presents 130 concerts and educational programs each year, including its season series, holiday concerts, Discovery concerts for students, Peanut Butter & Jelly concerts for children, community programs and outdoor summer concerts.
