Carnegie Hall is the World's Most Famous Performance Venue and it is a thrill for the Ballard Wind Ensemble to have been selected to play on this stage.
We were accepted into the "New York International Music Festival" through a competitive audition process and are one of eight ensembles chosen to perform at this particular festival on stage at Carnegie Hall on April 11, 2017 at 1:00 pm. We will be able to listen to and interact with students from all over the world throughout the festival. Other ensembles selected to perform include the Brisbane Regional Youth Orchestra from Australia, the Gwent Youth Wind Orchestra from Wales, the Los Angeles Children's Orchestra and the Virginia Tech Wind Ensemble and Choirs.
The Ballard Wind Ensemble is performing very challenging repertoire by prolific and highly esteemed composers (Overture to 'Candide' by Leonard Bernstein and 'Give Us This Day' by David Maslanka) at the Festival and the students have been working incredibly hard to prepare for this once in a lifetime performance. ~ Mr. James Director of Bands; Ballard High School
