This inventive program builds basic music skills in the classroom as children learn songs from different cultures, reflect on their own communities, and develop listening and singing skills. During the 2014–2015 season, students in grades K–2 explore various music styles including Haitian, classical, Mexican, American jug band, Argentinian, and klezmer, embarking on a musical journey through the diverse cultures found in the neighborhoods of their hometown—New York City. Students meet and interact with the professional musicians featured in the program during culminating concerts each semester at Carnegie Hall.
Reservations for the 2014-2015 season are currently at capacity. All further applicants will be placed on a waiting list.
