The James Collier Britt Orchestra Fellowship program provides aspiring musicians the unique opportunity to rehearse and perform alongside members of the Britt Orchestra under the baton of Music Director Teddy Abrams. All orchestral fellows will be mentored by a professional orchestral musician, and in some cases their mentor will be the section principal. The fellows will also form a chamber ensemble, choose their own repertoire, and provide outreach performances in the southern Oregon community. The 2017 fellowships will begin on July 20th and end on August 14th.
Each fellow will be provided with stipend of $1,000 for living expenses during the fellowship period, a $500 travel reimbursement, and housing.
Applications for the 2017 season are closed.
The 2017 Britt Orchestra Fellows are:
Alicia Keener - Texas Tech University
Nini Liao - Texas Christian University
Michael Woodard - University of Houston
