Salute to Music City-Wide Chorus Auditions



From Krista, the K-3th Grade Core Music Teacher and 5th-8th Grade Chorus Director:

Dear PS/IS 276 Families,

I hope this e-mail finds you well!  I am reaching out to inform you about an exciting opportunity for students in grades 4-8 who are interested in participating in the NYC Department of Education's Salute to Music program, a free audition-based ensemble program open to students throughout the city.  Rehearsals for these ensembles will take place on Saturdays from November - June.  The ensembles offered are Citywide Chorus, Manhattan Borough-Wide Concert Band, and Citywide Jazz Ensemble.  Each ensemble will prepare and present a culminating concert in the spring.

This year, I will be co-directing the Citywide Chorus and we will be hosting rehearsals at PS/IS 276 on Saturdays from 9:00 AM - 11:45 AM.  We will be holding auditions on the Saturdays of 10/13, 10/20, and 10/27.  We are super excited to be hosting rehearsals at our school and we could use as much PS/IS 276 representation as possible.  Please encourage your child to audition!  :)

To register to audition for any of the ensembles, visit this link: and have your child bring the attached consent form to the audition.  I've also attached the flyer for Citywide Chorus auditions.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me. Hope to see you and your child at auditions! 

All the best,
