Morse Academy students present final concert August 22

August 20, 2013

Morse-Academy-Concert520The students of the fourth Morse Summer Music Academy will give their final concert on Thursday, August 22 at 4:15 pm. The concert includes chamber music, orchestra, and band performances, and will take place in Morse Recital Hall, located in Sprague Memorial Hall (at the corner of College and Wall Streets).

The students have been practicing at least four hours a day for the last month. As part of the Morse Summer Music Academy, YSM has been hosting these 80 New Haven public school music students who are focusing on their musical technique, musicianship, and artistry, working with School of Music students, alums, faculty, and music teachers from the New Haven Public Schools.

“The results,” said Associate Dean Michael Yaffe, “have been nothing short of spectacular.… Here is something to celebrate about New Haven, and we hope you will join us.” The concert is free and open to the public.
