UGA Domestic - Franklin - NYC Music Maymester Program
"Music Field Study, Maymester" is an "Experiential Learning" program designed to be an exchange between UGA music students, and professional musicians in New York City. The core of the program is Jazz, but not exclusively Jazz. Students will attend nightly concerts of world renowned jazz artists. Also included is attending an "Open Rehearsal" of the New York Philharmonic, as well as a separate performance of the NY Philharmonic. Two Broadway shows will be on the calendar as well, which ones to be determined by ticket availability.
The uniqueness of the program is that students will have the opportunity to meet and spend quality time with the musicians and conductors as well as getting back stage tours. This type of interaction will provide the student with first hand insight into the process of such high level productions.
Other non-performance events included in the program will be guided tours of the Steinway Piano Factory in Queens, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In addition, we will experience the many other cultural attractions that the city has to offer.
The group will stay at the same approved hotel which is clean, safe, and close to all transportation and other amenities, including foods from all over the world!
The program will take place in New York City.
