In a show which is sure to be remembered by parents, students, and school officials alike, Troy High School's Bands and Orchestras will perform at Midtown Detroit's Orchestra Hall this week.
The Festival Concert gives the ensembles, made up of over 400 students, the opportunity to perform at the home of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. The Campus, Concert and Symphonic bands will perform musical works ranging from John Phillip Sousa to Malcolm Arnold. The Freshmen, Concert and Symphonic Orchestras will present music by Howard Hanson, Peter I. Tchaikovsky, Amadeus Mozart, and Antonin Dvorak among others.
Patrons will be lucky as well to be able to share in an exceptional night of musical magic presented by talented young musicians. In March, each ensemble will participate in competitions sponsored by the Michigan State Band and Orchestra Association before travelling out-of-state to compete on a national level.
In April, the Concert and Symphonic Bands will travel to Chicago for the Masters of Music at Symphony Center event. Meanwhile, the Symphony Orchestra will appear on stage at Lincoln Center as the evening concert’s featured performance. The Philharmonic Orchestra will be competing at the National Band & Orchestra Festival, also at Lincoln Center.
