Last night WHEELS music students attended an incredible performance by Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii at Carnegie Hall. The program included Beethoven's "Emperor" Piano Concerto No. 5 in E-flat Major. We're grateful to Access Orpheus for giving us this opportunity!

We are very proud of the four WHEELS music students who put their hearts and souls into a lively performance at Jazz at Lincoln Center on Saturday. These students are part of the Middle School Jazz Academy. We're grateful to Jazz at Lincoln Center for all they do for our students.

Last Thursday WHEELS music students got together with music students from The Equity Project (TEP) Charter School to practice two tunes: "Amazing Grace" and Eddie Palmieri's "Vamonos Pa'l Monte." The students sounded great! This is the first time these students have collaborated, and we're looking forward to more collaborations in the future.
