Kids on the Virtual Stage Application 2020-2021
As COVID-19 continues to keep us from performing at Carnegie Hall, we have adapted our programming to produce Kids on the Virtual Stage! Successful applicants will have the opportunity to receive coaching from The New York Pops musicians, attend virtual Q&A sessions with industry professionals, and learn the process of recording and submitting videos for a fully-produced video performance. Students must complete the online application form and have their music teacher send us a letter of recommendation to be considered for the opportunity to submit an audition video.

APPLICATION DEADLINE EXTENDED TO FRIDAY, JANUARY 29, 2021.

INVITATIONS TO SUBMIT AUDITION VIDEOS WILL BE SENT MONDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 2021.

Please note that email will be the primary form of communication for this program. To help ensure delivery, add analisa.bell@nypops.org to your safe senders list. You may also want to monitor your spam/junk folder.
