Count Me In 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. Students from across the city receive afterschool instruction and training in Carnegie Hall’s Resnick Education Wing, preparing them to audition for arts high schools. Meanwhile, school staff and parents attend informational sessions to learn more about how to support their young musicians. Carnegie Hall also supports the middle schools themselves, providing training and mentorship designed to help these schools establish and build their own programs.
Applications will be available online in mid-May 2016. Please refer to Program Details and Frequently Asked Questions for more information. For questions not listed, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sessions are for eighth-grade students who are committed to auditioning for performing arts high schools. Students may apply for Count Me In with online application available this Spring.
