The Carnegie Hall keeps on developing its long-standing educational and social commitment through the Weill Music Institute
Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute (WMI) offers broad-reaching education, community, and professional training programs of the highest quality, giving people of all ages the opportunity to create, experience, and enjoy the benefits of live music.
At a time when public funding for arts programs is in jeopardy, WMI’s comprehensive school-based programs for K-12, including Count Me In, offer much-needed music education resources for school with reduces or no arts programming.
Count Me In is a high-quality choral workshop that serves low-income students in grades 6-8 in New York City public schools who have an interest in vocal music but who attend school without established choral programs.
It helps fill a critical need for enriching in meaningful choral opportunities for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds in NYC.
The Edmond de Rothschild Foundations are thrilled to support a program that provides exceptional choral training for low-income middle school students.
Count Me In, an initiative that accompanies talented but underserved middle school students
Count Me In is an afterschool initiative that provides a free choral experience for middle school students from the 4 boroughs of NYC. Every school involved in the program is designated as Title 1, with many of the students at risk of academic failure.
The program focuses on sight-singing, rhythm, pitch, diction, and audition techniques, while instilling a sense of achievement and connection with fellow participants. Students from 2-5 schools in each of the four boroughs – Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan – come to sessions at a central location to study singing with professionals.
