The Teen Choral Partners project returns with MSO Music Director Ken-David Masur at the helm! The performance will take place in the brand new Bradley Symphony Center.

Each season, Wisconsin high school choral ensembles are invited to compete for the chance to perform with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra on the teen program in the Concerts for Schools series.


Ensembles selected for 2022 will work closely with conductor Ken-David Masur to prepare excerpts from Mozart’s Requiem before rehearsing with the MSO and performing the work during our Teen Concert on March 9, 2022.

To be considered, choral ensembles must submit the application and repertoire list to no later than June 21, 2021.

Please note: We know the last two school years have been very difficult on choral programs. We have revised our application requirements in recognition of these challenging circumstances. Unlike past years, recordings are welcome but not required. We have also added some additional questions to help us get a fuller picture of your program’s history and capability. Please contact us at with any questions or concerns. 



Application, repertoire list and recordings (optional) must be emailed to by June 21, 2021.

If selected, ensembles will be notified of their invitation to perform by July 16, 2021.



  • Recordings of up to 2 selections may be provided.
  • Recordings should be submitted by emailing mp3 files to or through (free file transfer service for larger files).
  • The current director must be the director for the 2021.22 season.
  • Selections may be either accompanied or a cappella.
