City OKs Yale Music Hall Renovation

New Haven Independent
By Thomas MacMillan

Two century-old Yale music buildings will be joined together and renovated, thanks to $25 million and new permission from city zoners.

The buildings are Leigh Hall and Hendrie Hall on the Yale campus at 435 College St. and 165 Elm St. respectively. The university Tuesday night secured zoning approval for a $25 million construction project at the two buildings, which are used by Yale’s School of Music. MORE

Yale/New Haven Solo Competition announces winners


The winners in the high school division, with the judges

The annual Yale/New Haven Young Artists Solo Competition, held May 20–22, 2013 in Morse Recital Hall, awarded prizes to nine public school music students. The competition, a collaboration between the Yale School of Music and the New Haven Public Schools, offers NHPS students the opportunity to demonstrate their skills and compete against their peers. Students are nominated by their school music teachers. The competition is part of the Music in Schools Initiative.

Each age group — 4th–6th grades, 7th–8th grades, and 9th–12th grades — competes on a different night. The two younger age groups include students who play percussion, string, brass, and woodwind instruments. The high school level of the Solo Competition is open to voice students as well as instrumentalists.

The top three performers in each age group were awarded prizes, including tickets to a future concert at the School of Music.
