NEW YORK (AP) - Nine middle school and high school students have won a chance to learn from New York Philharmonic musicians and perform with their mentors at Lincoln Center.

The students were selected by audition for the mentorship program with the New York Philharmonic musicians.

They’ll attend a philharmonic rehearsal and a young people’s concert. They’ll also benefit from an intensive day of coaching and rehearsal with the musicians.

The students and their mentors will perform together in a free concert at Lincoln Center on May 20.

The mentorship program was announced Wednesday by the Harmony Program. The nonprofit organization provides free instruments and classical music instruction to children in low-income New York City neighborhoods.

It is part of a multi-year collaboration between the philharmonic and the Harmony Program.
