The Count Me In afterschool initiative meets the needs of New York City middle-school singers, many of whom have never studied music before and whose schools do not have established choral programs. In the fall, 8th grade students receive instruction and training to prepare them for auditions to performing arts high schools. In the spring, 6-8th grade students participate in an inclusive choral experience designed to build skills and stimulate their passion for music.
Audition Preparation: To guide interested eighth
graders and their support systems of administrators and families toward deeper
musical engagement through preparation for auditions at performing arts high
schools or other community arts organizations.
Sessions are for eighth-grade students who are committed to auditioning for performing arts high schools.
