All-City Honors Ensembles

Among the ways that the Yale School of Music supports New Haven Public School students and music teachers is through the All-City Honors Ensembles. A combination of Yale Teaching Artists, NHPS music teachers, and special guests provides the best young musicians in New Haven with high level ensemble experiences in band, chorus, and orchestra.

The All-City Honors Ensembles are designed to fill a gap between the home schools of the most talented New Haven music students and the regional ensembles of Neighborhood Music School and the Connecticut Music Educators Association. For the 2013-2014 school year, all three programs were expanded to begin in the fall and to include two levels for each ensemble. For the 2014-15 school year, the Band and Orchestra programs have evolved to include chamber music ensembles as well as large ensembles.
