Applications open for 2014-15 All-City Honors Ensembles
The Music in Schools Initiative is pleased to invite applications for the 2014–2015 All-City Honors Ensembles. The All-City Honors Band, Chorus, and Orchestra are open for application to New Haven Public School students in 5th–12th grades. These groups meet weekly during the school year, and are taught by a combination of NHPS music teachers, Yale Teaching Artists, and special guests.
Applications are now open. All students must apply online by Sunday, October 12 using the appropriate form linked below.
Rehearsals for all Honors Ensembles will take place Saturdays beginning October 25, 9:30am—12:00pm. Concerts will take place on December 13th, March 28th, and May 30th. Other possible performances will be announced during the year. Full schedules will be available at the first rehearsal.
In 2013-14, each ensemble split into two ensembles based on ability. This year, the program expanded to include chamber music experience in addition to the large ensembles for all instrumental students. Students will be assigned to a level and a chamber group based on directors’ assessment of their previous participation in the programs, or on their audition, if applicable.
