Gold Medal Showcase

MICCA, with the support of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Mechanics Hall, will sponsor its 18th annual Gold Medal Showcase in the spring of 2017. Ensembles that earn a gold medal rating at the 2017 MICCA Concert and Choral Festivals will be invited to perform at either Mechanics Hall on Sunday, April 9th, 2017 or Symphony Hall on Saturday, April 15th, 2017.  There is no admission charge for audience members.

MICCA’s first “Stars at Symphony” took place in 1999 at Symphony Hall.  The response was so overwhelming that the necessity to expand to a second venue became immediately apparent.  Ozawa Hall at Tanglewood opened its doors to MICCA in 2000.  Then due to construction constraints, it was moved to Mechanics Hall in 2005.  All venues have been operating at capacity since.

The Gold Medal Showcase performances are exceptional examples of Massachusetts’ young musical talent.
