Students in grades 3–5 are given the opportunity to join the orchestra in this highly participatory program, in which they learn to sing and play an instrument in the classroom and perform with a professional orchestra from their seats at a culminating concert at Carnegie Hall. During the 2020–2021 season, NYC students participate in The Orchestra Rocks; during the 2021–2022 season, they will participate in The Orchestra Sings.
