Finals Concert

Greenwich House Music School,

46 Barrow St., New York, NY 10036

The New York Young Performers Prize (NYYPP) offers a unique musical experience for students of all instruments. Piano students from fourth to twelfth grades and string and vocal students ages nine to twenty-one will strive for a level of expertise where they will be rewarded with monetary prizes and presented in a live performance.
Students entering these auditions learn to develop a work ethic by preparing up to four pieces of music by memory (depending on the age group) and performing them before adjudicators. Entrants chosen from the preliminary round (Video Audition ) are then presented in concert for the final round.
The New York Young Performers Prizes go beyond developing a student’s talent. The preparation that goes into learning a piece of music and the experience of performing in a competitive environment will carry through to other aspects of their lives: academic, social, spiritual, and intellectual. In addition to rewarding students for their high levels of achievement, it also encourages teachers to maintain high pedagogical standards.
