Musicians from the New York Philharmonic perform a free side-by-side concert with students selected by audition from two of New York City’s six El Sistema–inspired programs: the Harmony Program (free, year-round, and community-based musical training to New York City children where it is needed most) and UpBeat NYC (free musical training for South Bronx children who have limited access to high-quality arts education). The concert marks the culmination of the students’ five-month mentorship with Philharmonic musicians.
