About the Honors Performance Series at Carnegie Hall

The High School Honors Performance Series at Carnegie Hall challenges elite students to perform at their very best. Students rehearse and perform under master conductors and have the opportunity to perform before invited representatives from collegiate and professional music programs. Though much of the students time is focused on performance preparation, the week also allows students to experience the best of the sights and the performance arts in New York City.

We are pleased to welcome rising 9th-12th grade musicians to submit their applications for the 2017 High School Honors Performance Series. For additional program and application details, please visit the High School Performers Page.
