The New York Invitational Music Festival was established to allow young musicians the opportunity to perform on one of the world's greatest stages, Isaac Stern Auditorium / Ronald O. Perelman Stage in the famed Carnegie Hall.
This educational music festival was designed to enhance the performance ability of students through master classes delivered by nationally known clinicians while experiencing the musical prowess of Broadway musicians. Young musicians will enjoy meeting other talented musicians from around the United States, and often time, from around the world!
