Auditions for College Prep Program at Music Conservatory of Westchester are Now Open

The program is geared toward teen musicians and singers.


The Music Conservatory of Westchester is honored to announce MCW Prep, a precollege training program for serious, advanced high school singers and instrumentalists to study with master performers of the New York Philharmonic, The Metropolitan Opera, Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, and Broadway!

Scheduled to launch in September 2019, MCW Prep is open to violin, viola, cello, clarinet, flute, and voice (classical and musical theater) students entering grades ninth through 12th.

Students will be selected by audition to enroll in an intensive program of private lessons with a master teacher, as well as chamber music, orchestra, theory, master classes, performance, audition preparation, and college advisement. As soloists and in ensembles with their talented peers, students will channel their musical aspirations to prepare for college studies and future careers.

Students accepted to MCW Prep will have the rare opportunity to train directly with renowned faculty at the highest levels of performance:

  • Ani Kavafian, violin (Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Yale University School of Music)
  • Rebecca Young, viola (New York Philharmonic)
  • Jerry Grossman, cello (Metropolitan Opera Orchestra)
  • Mindy Kaufman, flute (New York Philharmonic)
  • Pavel Vinnitsky, clarinet (New York Philharmonic)
  • Korliss Uecker, soprano (Metropolitan Opera)
  • Stefan Szkafarowsky, bass (Metropolitan Opera)
  • Randy Graff, musical theater (Tony Award winner, Manhattan School of Music)
