KIDS IN THE BALCONY is 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 and post-concert visits to teach students about the orchestra and connect content of the particular performance to general elements of musical knowledge.
Each subscription concert is dedicated to one of the five Borough-Wide Band and Orchestra programs, a series of ensembles for middle school students offered through the NYC Department of Education.
At The New York Pops annual Birthday Gala, over 830 tickets are provided to students in grades 3-12 from both partner and additional schools across the five boroughs.
