Pipeline to Success


In-school Residency

NYYS launched its first in-school residency in the 2017/18 season at the KIPP Middle School Academy in the South Bronx. Through the residency, NYYS artistic staff from the orchestra, jazz, chamber music and composition programs are engaging KIPP students through interactive workshops in conducting, improvisation, composition, and orchestration. NYYS students are participating actively in the residency through peer-to-peer instruction and side-by side rehearsals, serving as role models for KIPP students and encouraging them to deepen their involvement in music – perhaps even inspiring them to audition for an NYYS program.
