All-City Honors Ensembles to play spring concert May 9

ACHB_YCBThe 2013–14 season of the All-City Honors Ensembles — a major project of the Music in Schools Initiative — will come to a close with a final concert in Morse Recital Hall in Sprague Memorial Hall on Friday, May 9. The concert begins at 7:00 pm and is open to the public. Admission is free, no tickets required.

The All-City Honors Ensembles are comprised of a Wind Ensemble, Concert Band, Orchestra, and Chorus. Nearly every Saturday afternoon throughout the school year, a total of 160 New Haven Public School students have been attending rehearsals on Yale campus, led by a combination of NHPS music teachers, YSM graduate student Teaching Artists, and special guests. Students range from 4th-12th grade, and are admitted by audition in October. Participants are expected to maintain membership in their schools’ music ensembles as well, if available. MORE
