Motivated young pianists are invited to continue their musical journey with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra’s Civic Youth Ensembles program. There will be one student selected to be the Bea and Harry Shapiro Piano Scholar that will receive a full scholarship to participate in an advanced chamber ensemble that is coached by a Detroit Symphony Orchestra Musician. In addition, the Shapiro Piano Scholar will perform periodically as a member of our premiere large ensembles, the Detroit Symphony Youth Orchestra and Detroit Symphony Youth Wind Ensemble.

This is a full scholarship position that will be presented to one individual pianist.
