Michigan Philharmonic Youth Orchestra
Posted By: Beth Stewart (July 15, 2019)
The Michigan Philharmonic Youth Orchestra is a musical "home" for 130 students ages 8-18 who want to learn and perform classical music. With five different ensembles,this program provides students the opportunity to study with a professional conductor, give three concerts of their own each year as well as perform with the Michigan Philharmonic twice each season. No other youth orchestra program offers the same amount of professional performance opportunities. While there is a nominal tuition, no student is ever turned away because their family can't afford the tuition. A $1000 award from the Summer of Sharing would help establish a scholarship for students who need tuition assistance.
