The mission of the Music Outreach in the Music Department is to establish musical interaction between MSMU students, faculty, schools, and youth organizations throughout the Los Angeles area through workshops, presentations, and performances. Our programs offer a unique opportunity for both the community and MSMU music majors and minors to engage in an exchange of musical ideas and exposes students of all ages to stimulating artistic experiences.
From 2011-2018 the Music Department hosted the Concerto Competition of High School Students. Finalists were selected to perform with the Mount Orchestra under the direction of Mr. Chet Swiatkowski.
MSMU currently offers two specialized annual events for high school students: the Solo/Chamber Music Competition and the Choir Festival. Learn more below about each event, their scheduled dates, and costs.
