Peabody graduate student Josef Fischer, viola, will be a part of the New York String Orchestra Seminar, a ten day orchestral seminar that runs December 19-28, presented by the Mannes School of Music. At the seminar, participants prepare for concerts to be presented by Carnegie Hall, which involved intense orchestral rehearsals and attending chamber music workshops.
Peabody master’s candidate Andrew Im, clarinet, was chosen as second place winner of the American Protégé International Woodwinds and Brass Competition 2018. As a prizewinner, he will make his Carnegie Hall debut in April 2019.
Peabody’s production of Leonard Bernstein’s “Mass” was featured in an article on the Johns Hopkins Hub. The article by Brett McCabe details the importance of the rehearsals and work that go into putting on such a large and important production. This article includes quotes from Curtis Bannister, who will sing the role of the Celebrant, Maestra Marin Alsop, Samuel Mungo, and Dean Fred Bronstein. These are only a few of the directors and 540 performers that will see their hard work come together on Friday, October 26, at 7:30 pm for the only performance of “Mass.”
Doctoral candidate Nell Flanders, orchestral conducting, has been named the new assistant conductor with the Princeton Symphony Orchestra. Flanders will serve as cover conductor for PSO Music Director Rossen Milanov and be an integral member of the PSO artistic team.
