Approximately 400 young musicians are accepted by audition every year to take part in one of our eight audition groups. Over 140 additional students are enrolled in the Mozart String Project (for beginning string players), which focuses on beginning string instruction and is located at sites in Northeast and Northcentral Colorado Springs. Today, students from over sixty schools around the Pikes Peak region including Pueblo, Castle Rock, and Peyton participate in our programs. The association presents over 60 performances each year regionally, nationally and internationally. The educational program features music camps, performing tours, leadership classes, music theory instruction, a solo competition, exposure to all forms of orchestral literature, chamber music ensembles, and community collaborations.
Open auditions for the 2017-18 Season were held May 8-13, 2017. Mid-year auditions will be on December 9, 2017. Music is available at the link below. Have your young musician call for an appointment on November 1 or later — (719) 633-3901 — and they can be a part of the state’s most comprehensive youth instrumental music program!
