Spartan Youth Wind Symphony for High School Musicians: Apply Now for 2012-13


The Spartan Youth Wind Symphony, an honors wind ensemble for high school students, is currently accepting applications and scheduling auditions for the 2012-13 season.

The Spartan Youth Wind Symphony is under the direction of Dr. Cormac Cannon, MSU assistant director of bands, and is open to the most outstanding Michigan high school instrumentalists (woodwind, brass, and percussion). It provides students with the opportunity to rehearse in a university setting. Students perform with peers from around the state and receive instruction from College of Music faculty and students. They enhance their skills as musicians and ensemble performers through the exploration of advanced-level repertoire in an inspired rehearsal atmosphere. The experience culminates in joint concerts with the MSU Wind Symphony and Symphony Band at the end of the fall and spring semesters.

The deadline to register for an on-campus audition is Monday, April 23, 2012.
