Hail, Fellows, well met!
Over the weekend, the inaugural class of Zarin Mehta Fellows began their 11-day participation in the New York Philharmonic Global Academy program. The Fellows, selected by audition, are 10 instrumentalists from Music Academy of the West, one of our partners in the Program. Meet them in the video below!
The Fellows are already busy training and playing with Philharmonic musicians. They rehearsed Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake this morning and will perform it in concerts starting Thursday night. This typifies the uniquely intimate and rigorous immersion in the life of an orchestral musician that the Fellowship offers, and that will enrich the Fellows' musical and professional development. Other activities include coaching, chamber music, and other professional-development activities with Alan Gilbert and Philharmonic musicians at Avery Fisher Hall.
