Summer Session: June 8 – July 28!
MPR expectations are high because students are accepted only through a competitive audition process, or by teacher referral. Auditions are open without regard to race, religion (creed), gender, national origin, disability or sexual orientation.
Students are provided opportunities to perform publicly, and in guest artist events which are affordable or free, and in venues accessible to all.
