Kids in the Balconyis The New York Pops' flagship education program. The program centers around a concert-going experience that provides tickets to 100 students for each New York Pops subscription concert at Carnegie Hall. PopsEd Teaching Artists conduct pre-concert visits to teach students about the orchestra and connect content of the particular performance to general elements of musical knowledge.
At The New York Pops annual Birthday Gala, more than 830 tickets are provided to students in grades 3-12 from both partner and additional schools across the five boroughs.
The orchestra celebrated the 25th Anniversary of the program, one of the orchestra's most successful education initiatives, during the 2016-2017 season.
