Winter and Spring Festivals
In New Haven, school vacation doesn’t mean taking a break from music! During the NHPS Winter and Spring Breaks, the Music in Schools Initiative hosts “vacation festivals” for students in 3rd through 8th grade. Festival students enjoy large ensemble rehearsals, instrument-specific instruction, and joyful music-making with Yale School of Music Teaching Artists and New Haven Public School music teachers.
The 2017 festivals were held at Lincoln-Bassett School and Fair Haven School; students’ location is determined by their school.
Winter Festival: Tuesday, February 21 – Friday, February 24, 2017
Spring Festival: Monday, April 17 – Friday, April 21, 2017
Festival applications are available through NHPS music teachers.
