The 2014–15 season of the All-City Honors Ensembles — a major program of the Music in Schools Initiative — will come to a close with a final concert in Morse Recital Hall in Sprague Memorial Hall on Saturday, May 30. The concert begins at 6:00 pm and is open to the public. Admission is free, no tickets required.
The All-City Honors Ensembles are comprised of band, orchestra, and chorus programs. Nearly every Saturday afternoon throughout the school year, a total of over 200 New Haven Public School students have been attending rehearsals at Wilbur Cross HS, 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
