This inventive program, for which Carnegie Hall partners with teachers at schools throughout New York City, builds basic music skills in the classroom as children learn songs from different cultures, reflect on their own communities, and develop singing and listening skills. During the 2014-2015 season, students explore Haitian, Mexican, Argentine, classical, jug band, and Yiddish folk music styles. They also interact with professional musicians featured in the program during culminating concerts each semester at Carnegie Hall.
For the first time, organizations around the country are adapting Musical Explorers for use in their own communities this year. Partner organizations work with Carnegie Hall to develop versions of the program that feature artists and cultures from their own areas.
Registration for this program is now closed. Registration for the 2015–2016 season of this program will begin in early spring.
