Carnegie Hall & Lincoln Center


US Chorus members with Grammy-winning composer/conductor Eric Whitacre after a rehearsal in NYC. Spring 2014.

HOW DO YOU GET TO CARNEGIE HALL?

In 2012, 2014, and 2016, students from the Upper School Chorus participated in choral music festivals in New York City, produced by Distinguished Concerts International New York (DCINY). These three-day events allow our students the opportunity to work with internationally recognized conductors, sing with other high school and college students from around the world, and be part of once-in-a-lifetime performances at either Carnegie Hall or Lincoln Center. We look forward to our next choral adventure in the 2017-2018 school year!
