Zarin Mehta Fellows: In Concert, In the News, in the Archive

Posted January 13, 2015

On Sunday the inaugural Zarin Mehta Fellows from Music Academy of the West met their "namesake," former New York Philharmonic President and Executive Director Zarin Mehta. It was at a private chamber concert for donors in Lincoln Center's Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse, where the Fellows performed with Philharmonic musicians.

The purest example of immersion in the real life of an orchestral musician, the goal of the Fellowship itself, began on Thursday night, when the Fellows performed in the subscription concert alongside Orchestra members. (They are performing in the entire run, which ends tonight.) Here are cellist Genevieve Tabby and percussionist Charlie Rosmarin during that concert's performance of Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake Suite:
