The Midwest Young Artists (MYA) Symphony Orchestra is the top orchestral ensemble at the Highwood Illinois-based non-profit music school. Critically acclaimed and celebrated as one of the greatest youth orchestras in the country, the MYA Symphony performed such pieces in the 2011-12 season as Strauss’s Ein Heldenleben and Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances. This special performance will incorporate students from the Lang Lang Young Scholars Program, will perform Grieg and Chopin piano concertos. The Lang Lang Young Scholars Program is designed to support talented young pianists and allow them to perform and give back to their communities in an effort to build an appreciation of classical music for a young audience.
