New York Philharmonic at the Music Academy

2017 marks the fourth year of partnership with the New York Philharmonic. Masterclasses, seminars, and private lessons take place during a one-week residency of Philharmonic musicians which also includes an orchestra concert led by Music Director Alan Gilbert.

In addition, the Philharmonic musicians oversee an annual audition through which ten Academy Fellows are chosen to participate in the New York Philharmonic Global Academy Fellowship Program; a 10-day intensive immersive residency held next in New York City January 2018. Global Academy activities include private lessons, chamber music, a mock audition, seminars with artists and administrators, and appearances with the orchestra in a subscription week of rehearsals and concerts. The Global Academy program provides travel and housing for participating Fellows, who are paid a stipend equal to one week base salary (minus union dues and applicable taxes).
