Symphony Solo Competition

The stakes are high as MYS’ top musicians perform in a recital to determine the winner of the annual Symphony Solo Competition. The winner goes on to perform his or her concerto with the MYS Symphony Orchestra. Open to Symphony students only. 

Community Chamber Concerts

MYS Chamber Concerts are an opportunity for MYS students to showcase their talent in small ensembles, duos, and as soloists. These events take place in nursing homes, assisted care facilities, churches and other venues in the Twin Cities. These performances are free and open to the public. This is a great opportunity to share your musical talent with others and introduce MYS to the community. More information soon.

Small Ensemble Referrals

MYS is frequently contacted to provide small ensemble music for public and private events. Students who have extra-curricular small ensembles can register with MYS to receive referrals. Contact Krin McMillen, kmcmillen@mnyouthsymphonies.org, for more information.
