MSFO=Music School Festival Orchestra
Each summer, we enroll 82 of the most promising young instrumentalists from here and abroad to join us for an exciting summer of music making. Our students are typically 18 to 28 and enrolled in (or recently graduated from) undergraduate or graduate studies. On occasion, we do admit a high school student who is advanced enough and ready to undertake seven weeks of intensive study.
Timothy Muffitt, music director of the Baton Rouge Symphony and the Lansing Symphony, is the principal conductor for the six-concert series by the MSFO. There are no auditions for seating, all sections are rotated for each concert.
