Congratulations to NWS Fellows and Alumni on 2019-20 Job Wins

Skull & Bones performance

The New World Symphony envisions a strong and secure future for classical music. In the past 32 years, NWS has prepared over 1,150 Fellows for careers in performance, education, advocacy and administration. We congratulate the 36 Fellows and alumni who won positions during the 2019-20 season and are taking with them skills they've developed during their time with NWS to professional positions around the world. From Sarasota to Vienna, these talented musicians will continue to make an impact among their colleagues and in their new communities as they have here in Miami Beach. Join us in celebrating these many accomplishments.
