The Somewhere Project

In celebration of Carnegie Hall’s 125th anniversary season, the Weill Music Institute is launching The Somewhere Project, a citywide exploration of West Side Story. This unique creative learning project will engage people through events in all five boroughs of New York City, anchored by a large-scale production of West Side Story. However, you don’t need to be in New York City to participate in The Somewhere Project. An eight-part interactive companion course is available to users around the globe free of charge. You’ll learn about the history and social issues that inspired West Side Story; and get practical instructions from professionals on all facets of performance, including songwriting, dance, acting, audition preparation, and much more. 

The Somewhere Challenge:

We challenge you to create an original piece of music inspired by the song "Somewhere" from West Side Story. It could be a cover of the work itself or an original song that captures the spirit of the song—imagining a better world for us. Share your recording on social media with #SomewhereProject and we will add it to our gallery! If you're looking for inspiration, sign up for the full West Side Story Companion Course to hear Marin Alsop and others talk about the original work.

You can also share your responses to the Somewhere Project and this challenge in the Musical Theater and Songwriting groups to get feedback and help create new ideas!
