Michigan Youth Ensembles

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.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, MYE will be going online for the 2020-2021 academic year! Students will continue to participate in weekly rehearsals, culminating for many in virtual performances at the end of each semester. Students will also engage with weekly educational webinars, with subjects ranging from topics specific to their ensemble (e.g. string techniques, history of wind ensembles), to general sessions all MYE students can participate in (e.g. SMTD admissions sessions, virtual campus tours, how to record yourself at home).
