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 2021 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 17, 2021.

To be considered, choral ensembles must submit the application, a recording of two selections (either by emailing mp3 files, submitting online through our website, or mailing a CD), and a current repertoire list no later than June 22, 2020.

Please note: If you wish to apply but have difficulties meeting any of the requirements below due to the COVID-19 situation and how it has affected your 2019.20 school year, please contact us at
