New York International Music Festival

New York, New York, USA – April 13 – 17, 2019

Experience performing at the world famous Carnegie Hall, a once in a lifetime opportunity!

It is our mission to present young musicians with an experience that offers the opportunity for musical growth while creating lasting memories. To enhance this experience, the performance venue chosen for the festival is Carnegie Hall which I’m sure you will have most certainly heard of. Admission into the festival is based on audition only and is limited to six high school groups and two university ensembles.

Festival activities will include a group workshop with festival faculty, performance at Carnegie Hall and one outdoor performance in Central Park or similar. World Projects will then create a custom itinerary to suit your educational needs while in New York and in other parts of the USA.

We hope you will join us as we celebrate musical excellence in the incredible atmosphere of New York.
