We are very excited to announce that the Fall River Arts Academy is returning to the most prestigious stage in New York City - Carnegie Hall, on Saturday, March 18th, 2023. The elegant, intimate Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall is home each season to hundreds of recitals, chamber music concerts, panel discussions, and master classes. At many of these events, you’re likely to find young musicians making their New York debuts.
As always, we'll be taking care of business and all of the details so that you can have peace of mind knowing that the day of the performance will go smoothly and that you and your appearance at Carnegie Hall will be positive and memorable. Imagine the transformation that your student will go through by preparing for and participating in this event.

You'll be able to tell your friends, family and neighbors that your child had the opportunity as well as the confidence to play at the grandest stage in New York City!

PER CARNEGIE HALL POLICIES STUDENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO PERFORM WITH A BACKING TRACK!

- Drummers will play a drum kit. They can play a drum solo or a concert snare drum piece. They may also play a piece accompanied by a piano or guitar player.
- Small amplifiers are allowed for Guitar and Bass players and will be provided by the Academy the day of the recital. If the student owns an acoustic instrument they may play on that if it is preferred.
- If any performer would like any type of professional accompaniment it will be $100 per musician for hire. The Academy will have a pianist and a guitarist available for hire for anyone who would like to use them (especially vocalists).
