PHOTOS: Music Academy of the West Inaugural Performance Residency

Posted August 05, 2015

This week the New York Philharmonic completed its first performance residency at Santa Barbara’s Music Academy of the West, the first American partner in the New York Philharmonic Global Academy, which couples concerts with instruction to train the next generation of orchestral musicians. The residency began with Music Academy students and Philharmonic musicians working together in a side-by-side reading of Mahler's Fifth, continued with lessons and master classes, and closed with the Philharmonic’s Santa Barbara Bowl debut with an all-American program led by Music Director Alan Gilbert.
