Each year Michibago is excited to sponsor a number of events for students' development as musicians. See our calendar for sign-up deadlines and event dates.
Each year we invite distinguished guest artists, composers, and teachers to give master classes with opportunities for our students to gain valuable critique.
This competition by grade level divisions has a different theme each year, such as Baroque, Contemporary, Spanish, Sonatina, etc. and students prepare music based on the theme. Winners from each division participate in a winner’s recital at the end of the day. All students receive a certificate for participation and winners receive a gold sticker on their certificate.
This competition by grade level divisions alternates between a Composition Festival and a Classical Improvisation Festival.
District Auditions and State Badger Competition
Students prepare various repertoire, test their theory skills with a musicianship exam, and earn points toward awards as they progress each year. Students in state track have the opportunity to advance onto the state competition.
Young Musical Stars Concert
Top students are selected by their teachers to perform at the beautiful Stefanie H. Weill Center in Sheboygan for this exciting series of concerts.
