Play on America’s greatest stage…

Designed to reward musical achievement, this elite festival invites accomplished choirs, bands and orchestras to perform at the world-famous Carnegie Hall on the Ronald O Perelman Stage. Selected ensembles work directly with world-renowned conductors and adjudicators who are also dedicated educators with a passion for passing on their skills and love of music.

When ensembles aren’t rehearsing, they’ll get to explore and absorb the culture of New York – a world-class centre for the arts!
