The Society is deeply committed to cultivating future
generations' love for choral music. Our education programs
teach, support, and motivate students who have a wide range of
musical experience and awareness of the choral repertoire.
OSNY's workshops bring professional teaching artists to New
York City's underserved schools and are designed to develop a
knowledge and appreciation of choral music.
Students are exposed to the structure, historical context, and
emotional impact of music specific to an upcoming OSNY
concert. Each session is designed to encourage participation
and discussion, deepening the students' understanding and
preparing them for the direct experience of attending a
performance at Carnegie Hall as guests of the Society. Free
tickets are provided for students and chaperones.
The Choral Scholars program provides paid apprenticeships for young
students or recent graduates of vocal performance and choral
conducting. These young singers are mentored by the Society
to foster their choral singing skills and leadership in return for
their vocal and musical support to the ensemble.
High 5 provides tickets to NYC arts events to teens at a nominal cost. The Oratorio Society of New York supports this program—and its work to introduce the next generation
of concert-goers the glories of choral music--by donating tickets to its Carnegie Hall concerts.
