Open to ensembles of all musical genres based in schools or the wider community, MoPOP’s STAR program supports youth music ensembles by conveying the artistic skills necessary to perform in a professional capacity.

Students identify learning goals, receive two hours of dedicated coaching from professional artists experienced in working with youth, and get valuable public performance opportunities on stage in MoPOP's Sky Church.


    • $350 for two hours of coaching and performance (includes $100 admin fee) plus museum admission fees (admission fees are based on group type)
    • This program is offered free of charge to Free or Reduced Price

Note: February through May is STAR’s busiest time of the year. We usually have a full roster by January. Please plan accordingly and contact us as early as possible.
