Congratulations to NWS Fellows and Alumni on 2018-19 Job Wins

New World Symphony

The New World Symphony envisions a strong and secure future for classical music. In the past 31 years, NWS has prepared over 1,100 Fellows for careers in performance, education, advocacy and administration. We congratulate the 42 Fellows and alumni who won positions during the 2018-19 season and are taking with them skills they've developed during their time with NWS to professional positions around the world. From Los Angeles to Hong Kong, these talented musicians will continue to make an impact among their colleagues and in their new communities as they have here in Miami Beach. Join us in celebrating these many accomplishments.
