Applications are now being accepted for the 2018-19 Class Notes Artist program! Deadline for submitting is April 2, 2018.
About Class Notes Artists
The Class Notes Artists program at Classical MPR brings educational music performances to young and diverse audiences in Minnesota's schools, creating authentic and transformative live-music experiences for them. Each artist or ensemble is selected for outstanding musicianship and a commitment to bringing music to children where they learn on a daily basis. In addition to school visits, Artists record audio or video in Classical MPR's Maud Moon Weyerhaeuser Music Studio and Artists work with Classical MPR's curriculum specialist to create curricula for teachers' in-classroom use that cover both pre- and post-performance topics. The curriculum specialist will advise artists on how to incorporate diverse and age-appropriate content into their program and coach artists in successful delivery methods for their presentations. Artists will do a performance chat next winter with a Classical MPR host to talk about their experience in schools.
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until April 2, 2018. Qualified applicants will be invited to interview with the Class Notes: Artists team at Classical MPR. At the interview, the Artist will be asked to present a mini prepared sample performance.
