A few stats on our incoming class:

Map of incoming Fellows' home countries

  • They come to Miami from six countries: the U.S., China, Taiwan, Korea, Canada and England.

  • The Fellow closest to home is Piano Fellow Wesley Ducote, who is a native of DeQuincy, Louisiana, a mere 1,072 miles from the New World Center.

  • The Fellow farthest from home is Trombone Fellow Guangwei Fan from Guangzhou, China, a whopping 8,934 miles from his new home in Miami Beach.

  • The first-year Fellows range in age from 22-30.

  • They’ve studied all over the world, but the most-attended programs are The Juilliard School in New York and The Colburn School in Los Angeles.

  • Fun fact: Cello Fellow Ben Fryxell is NWS’s first “grandchild” Fellow!
