STAR: Detroit Metropolitan Youth Symphony

by: Travis Wright

WDET’s Star program supports regional arts and culture non-profits doing vital work on humble budgets. With auditions coming up next month, WDET’s Travis Wright introduces us to the Detroit Metropolitan Youth Symphony. Featuring 250 dedicated members representing more than 50 communities, it's one of Michigan’s oldest youth symphonies.

That was the Detroit Metropolitan Youth Symphony performing George Gershwin’s “Cuban Overture” at Orchestra Hall last February.
