Philharmonic Announces Partnership with Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music

Posted April 22, 2015

Houston, we have a partner. 

We are thrilled that Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music will be the third partner in the New York Philharmonic Global Academy, collaborations with institutions worldwide to train the orchestra musicians of tomorrow. 

Under the partnership, taking place next season, a group of Rice string students will travel to New York in May 2016 to train and play with the Philharmonic as Fellows in the New York Philharmonic Global Academy Fellowship Program, and Philharmonic musicians will travel to Houston to present master classes at The Shepherd School of Music in fall 2015.
