200-Minute Practice Challenge


Each year the Grand Rapids Youth Symphony and Classical Orchestra challenge middle school musicians to practice 200 minutes in one week.  For each week (maximum of four) that students practice 200 minutes, they receive a free ticket to one of our concerts.  Students who attend the concert are eligible for fabulous prizes.

  • more students practicing more minutes
  • a chance to win a $100 gift certificate to a local restaurant
