Introducing the L.A. Orchestra Fellowship

The Ensemble seeks to connect and inform all people who are committed to ensemble music education for youth empowerment and social change.

Introducing the L.A. Orchestra Fellowship


A model to adopt?  This was the first year of the L.A. Orchestra Fellowship, a two-year intensive for musicians who play violin, viola and cello.  It is the first comprehensive orchestral fellowship program for top-tier string musicians from underrepresented communities on the West Coast of the United States.  Four initial Fellows have been selected; they have been mentored in chamber and orchestral performance, studied with the musicians of Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, performed in concerts throughout the Los Angeles, taught aspiring students at the Inner City Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles, and pursued a music certificate at the University of Southern California. The Fellowship is the first of its kind in the country to include an institution of color in its creation and development (ICYOLA, the country’s largest African American-majority youth orchestra) and the first to include a mentoring component.
