NWS Connect is an online initiative that enables purposeful discussions and interactions between aspiring young instrumentalists alongside mentorship from the New World Symphony, America’s Orchestral Academy.
NWS Hangouts and Events
Chat online in real time with the Fellows of the New World Symphony through our Virtual Hangouts. During the hangouts, Fellows discuss relevant classical music topics, answer audience questions and feature visiting guests and NWS alumni. NWS Hangouts are hosted through MUSAIC and Facebook and are open to any middle and high-school musicians.
