Young Music Makers 2018 No Tickets Required

Young Music Makers

  • Show & Tell
  • Dive In
Show Full Description

Each spring for more than two decades, schools from throughout the US present their bands, jazz ensembles, choirs, choruses and orchestras on Lincoln Center’s outdoor plazas as part of Lincoln Center’s Young Music Makers series. Performances by the school groups are free to the public and usually occur around lunchtime, when the plazas are crowded with visitors and Lincoln Center neighbors. Lincoln Center provides the venue, chairs, and electricity if needed. Schools bring their own instruments, music stands, and amplifiers. Schools from outside the NY-NJ-CT tri-state region are eligible for this program if they schedule a tour of the Lincoln Center campus. The tour component is optional for schools within the NY-NJ-CT tri-state area. We are eager to expand this opportunity to the many developing musicians of New York City and hope to hear from more NYC music educators soon!
