Cass Technical High School senior Richard McCall, a student of the chamber orchestra, has been named a “Michigan Youth Arts Distinguished Scholar.” McCall was invited to participate in the 52nd Annual Michigan Youth Arts Festival, May 8-10 in Kalamazoo.
According to MYAF, more than 250,000 students statewide participate in the selection process, resulting in nearly 1,000 Michigan high school student artists being invited to take part in the annual three-day event. The students are selected through a technical adjudication (judging) process.
The invited scholars represent multiple artistic disciplines, including instrumental and vocal music, music composition, theater, dance, visual art, creative writing and media arts. The three day event features workshops and master classes for the students, as well as student performances and exhibitions that are open to the public.
