Last weekend 11 WHEELS music students auditioned for Camp MSM at Manhattan School of Music! We're very proud of them for taking on this challenge. Just completing an audition like this, regardless of the outcome, is a big accomplishment.

On Tuesday morning we were lucky enough to have clarinetist Alan Kay work with one of our middle school bands! We got to see Mr. Kay perform with Orpheus Chamber Orchestra at Carnegie Hall the previous Saturday, and students had plenty of questions for him. Students even got to improvise with him on their band instruments!

This weekend 7th and 8th grade WHEELS students rehearsed and performed with middle school students from all over the city in the MEANYC All-County Concert Band and Jazz Band! The students put together a great concert in just a short amount of time, and we're very proud of their hard work and collaboration with new friends from other schools.

Also this weekend, thanks to Access Orpheus, WHEELS students were lucky enough to see Orpheus Chamber Orchestra perform with violinist Vadim Gluzman at Carnegie Hall!
