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.
Space is limited, so we recommend that applications be submitted
as soon as possible and prior to the start of September. All students and
parents must complete the application as well as take part in a short
interview with Carnegie Hall staff.
Please refer to Program Information and Frequently Asked Questions for more information. For questions not listed, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
