FALL 2020 COVID-19 PREPARATIONS
With regards to the Fall 2020 semester, Michigan Youth Ensemble Staff is currently exploring alternative options to an in-person MYE experience. This includes both a hybrid in-person / online program, as well as a solely online alternative. The final decision will be influenced by the guidelines set forth by the president of the university, which have not yet been released for the fall.
Final program information will be reflected here, as well as communicated to applicants, no later than July 31, 2020. You will also see updated information with regards to your ensemble on their individual webpage. We appreciate your patience during this time and thank you for your flexibility.
The Michigan Youth Ensembles (MYE) program brings together exceptional high school students for weekly rehearsals at the U-M School of Music, Theatre & Dance. MYE Students, who are selected by audition, have the opportunity to engage in a stimulating environment, while learning from U-M conductors, applied faculty, and graduate students. Students develop a sense of teamwork, experiencing intellectual, emotional, and artistic growth through weekly rehearsals that culminate in performances in many of U-M’s premiere performance venues, including historic Hill Auditorium. Created as an enrichment opportunity for local music education programs, MYE allows students to work in a highly competitive collegiate setting and minimizes barriers between high school and college music study.
Applications for the 2020-2021 Michigan Youth Ensembles (MYE) Season are currently closed. Be on the lookout for information on make-up auditions.
