The ensemble aims to create an aspirational place for exceptionally talented teens to develop music and ideas and share them with the world.

All application materials must be submitted using an online form administered by Acceptd, a service that provides a digital audition platform to many performing arts schools and programs. In order to start the FMP Ensemble application, you will need to create an Acceptd account. (If you already have one, you can start a new application using your existing account.) Once you have created an Acceptd account, you will be able to save your progress at any time. If this is your first experience with an online digital audition service, we encourage you to allow enough time to upload and review the required application videos to make certain they represent your playing as effectively as possible.
Ensemble members are encouraged to attend a Studio 57 workshop (Saturdays from 11 AM to 3 PM) where they will have access to music equipment and Carnegie Hall staff support for their applications. Application support starts on December 9 and continues until applications close. Ensemble members are also featured on all Studio 57 Live concerts. Learn more about Studio 57 and view the Studio 57 Live schedule.
The 2017–2018 Ensemble application is now closed. Please check back in December for the 2018–2019 application.
