American orchestras have a diversity problem. People of color make up only about four percent of the musicians in U.S. symphonies. The Atlanta Music Project is looking to change that. They provide free instruments and lessons to underserved kids in southwest Atlanta, in the hopes of getting them interested in classical music careers. We talk with Dantes Rameau, Co-Founder and Executive Director of The Atlanta Music Project, and Rick Robinson, Founder of Cut Time Productions.
