On April 6 in Mount Pleasant, MI, studio member Andrew Li (a junior at Novi High School) was named one of four winners of the 2018 Michigan Youth Arts Festival Concerto Competition. On Friday, May 11, Andrew performed Carl Maria von Weber’s Clarinet Concerto no. 1 in F minor, 1st movement, with the Detroit Youth Symphony Orchestra as part of the Michigan Youth Arts Festival Gala Concert.
