Congratulations to NWS Fellows and Alumni on 2020-21 Job Wins
The New World Symphony envisions a strong and secure future for classical music. In the past 33 years, NWS has prepared over 1,150 Fellows for careers in performance, education, advocacy and administration. These talented musicians take with them skills they've developed during their time with NWS to professional positions around the globe.
We congratulate the following Fellows and alumni who won positions during the 2020-21 season, a unique period when most ensemble auditions and educational vacancies were cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. With many stepping into new faculty positions, these 17 Fellows and alumni will continue to make an impact among their colleagues, students and in their new communities as they have here in Miami Beach. Join us in celebrating these accomplishments.
