As noted in a previous post, the Arizona Office of Tourism (AOT) has embarked upon a new project to encourage visitors to not only see Arizona but to hear Arizona. AOT has developed the Arizona Music Project (AMP), a six-minute musical tribute to Arizona that captures the state’s diverse geography, culture, and heritage in music. In addition to the composition, a documentary was created to chronicle the journey of the musicians who contributed to the project.

- Chandler: John Herrera, percussion
- Gilbert: VerRona Grandil, viola, violin
- Mesa: Dominic Amato, saxophone; Carrie Caruso, violin; Nick Sterling, guitar; Joe Swierupski, bass; Melanie Yarger, cello
