THIS PROGRAM HAS BEEN SUSPENDED FOR 2020-21

Due to COVID-19, the funding that has been used for this program has been redirected and will not be available for Playing With the Pros in 2020. We are very sorry to miss a year but hope to offer this opportunity again in fall of 2021 to students in our community.

This multifaceted annual program guides advancing young musicians through the process of preparing to solo with an orchestra. Students participate in a competitive audition process.  Those selected for the program receive individual coaching sessions with an accompanist and Rochester Symphony Music Director Jere Lantz which culminate in a dress rehearsal and performance with the Rochester Symphony Orchestra.
