MYSO Participates in Premier Orchestral Institute 2019

The Premier Orchestral Insitute (POI) is the intensive summer festival sponsored by the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra for string players from beginner to advanced levels. It is held each summer in the first week of June and is a wonderful opportunity for our musicians to expand upon their orchestral training. At POI great value is placed upon the social experience that comes with learning side-by-side with fellow students and instructors from all over the world.

Students go through all aspects of the orchestral experience
