Brave New World: NWS on PBS News Hour


On February 1, 2021, the PBS News Hour aired a piece on MTT and the New World Symphony.

The piece begins with MTT’s description of NWS as a bridge between academic work and professional life. He explains, and Fellows demonstrate, our use of online learning to keep musical energy flowing during the pandemic. This is resilience.

You will also see MTT and our Fellows bringing our vision statement to life. That statement says: we envision a strong and secure future for classical music and will reimagine, reaffirm, express and share its traditions with as many people as possible. MTT ends the piece by talking about the Fellows’ commitment to sharing. It is a fitting end to an inspiring piece.

The sudden stillness of the pandemic has been a challenge. However, in our digital environment, the fellowship remains strong and the performance calendar is set to bring you weekly concerts. I thank you for your commitment to NWS, especially now.
