About the 2021 Fellows
2020 marked an all-time high for the number of musicians applying to the Summer School & Festival. Coincidentally, 2,020 candidates applied for the 139 fellowships; a highly competitive process. The fellows represented 23 countries, 22 of the United States, and 42 Universities and Conservatories. They ranged in age from 18-34.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Festival transitioned from an in-person program to a productive and inspirational online program, the Music Academy Remote Learning Institute (MARLI). Those enrolled were given the opportunity to defer their enrollment and are welcomed back to the 2021 Summer School & Festival. Learn more about each 2021 fellow below!
