Future Music Project Ensemble
Future Music Project Ensemble is a dynamic collective of the brightest young musicians from across New York City. In this youth-led ensemble, teens bring their unique musical styles and learn the skills they need to create, perform, and produce original music. The ensemble comprises students ages 14–19 (high school and up).
An audition-based group of up to 15 young musicians, Future Music Project Ensemble is as diverse and vibrant as New York City itself. The ensemble aims to create an aspirational place for exceptionally talented teens to develop music and ideas and share them with the world. Ensemble members are expected to commit to performing in 19 concerts and coming to Carnegie Hall after school throughout the week. All members meet on Tuesdays for workshops from 4 PM–6:30 PM, with additional rehearsals scheduled around events throughout the year.
Lead support for Future Music Project is provided by Nicola and Beatrice Bulgari and The Harold W. McGraw, Jr. Family Foundation.
Major funding is provided by Ameriprise Financial and MetLife Foundation.
Public support is provided by the City of New York through the Administration for Children’s Services.
Carnegie Hall is a partner in The Door's Youth Opportunity Hub, funded [in part] by the New York County District Attorney's Criminal Justice Investment Initiative (CJII).
