CCSD Music Department

Our performing ensembles present numerous concerts during the school year and consistently earn highest honors in state and regional competitions. Guest artists who have worked with our students include Nancy Allen (principal harpist of the New York Philharmonic); Pulitzer Prize, Academy Award and multiple Grammy Award-winning composer John Corigliano; the American Brass Quintet; and the Callidore String Quartet. In the recent years, Carmel High School bands, orchestras, and choirs have performed at St. Peter’s Basilica (Vatican); Rome, Italy; Florence, Italy; Yankee Stadium; St. Patrick’s Cathedral (New York); Good Day New York (TV-New York), the New York State Capitol (Albany), the New York State School Music Association state conference (Rochester); and the New Jersey Music Educators’ Association state convention.

Carmel School District was chosen for each of the last three years as a “Best Community for Music Education” by the National Association for Music Merchants (NAMM). Additionally, Carmel High School was chosen by the recording industry as a GRAMMY Signature School Semi-Finalist for the 2015-2016 school year. This honor “recognizes [the] top U.S. public high schools that are making an outstanding commitment to music education during an academic school year.”
