NOI+F’s first cohort of Conducting Fellows takes the lead on the podium in this performance of works written by our inaugural Composition Fellows. Hosted by Music Director Marin Alsop, in this event you will hear two different interpretations of each piece–each showcasing a different Conducting Fellow. You will also hear from each Composition Fellow about their work. Be sure to also join us at the end of our performance for a dynamic conversation moderated by Marin and guest composer Mason Bates.

The National Orchestral Institute + Festival, a program of the University of Maryland’s Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, trains aspiring orchestral musicians, composers, conductors and arts administrators from across the country in a month of dynamic music-making and professional exploration at The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Musicians are chosen through a rigorous, cross-country audition process. Every year, these young artists present passionate and awe-inspiring performances of adventuresome repertoire at The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center.
