Every year, the Michigan Pops Orchestra coordinates with local high schools to hold a concerto competition. Auditions take place in early December, and winners are invited to perform with the orchestra during the winter concert in April.
Please contact Outreach Director, Jessica Wu (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions regarding the competition. Thank you for your interest!
