NOI+F’s second cohort of conducting fellows takes the lead on the podium in this performance of works written by NOI+F composition fellows Cole Reyes, Nicky Sohn and Elliot Roman. Hosted by Music Director Marin Alsop, each fellow will interpret a different piece. They will also discuss their work at the end of the performance in a dynamic conversation moderated by Alsop and special guests!

This event is part of the National Orchestral Institute + Festival (NOI+F), a program of The Clarice at the University of Maryland. NOI+F trains aspiring orchestral musicians, composers, conductors and arts administrators from across the country in a month of dynamic music-making and professional exploration. Trailblazing conductor Marin Alsop was appointed as the first-ever Music Director of the National Orchestral Institute + Festival in 2020. In addition to conducting innovative programs onstage at The Clarice and at Wolf Trap, Maestra Alsop launched the NOI+F Conducting Academy for rising young conductors in 2021. In 2015, NOI+F began a partnership with Naxos to record one concert of all-American music each year—Naxos’ first partnership with a summer festival of its kind. The 2019 recording “Ruggles, Stucky, Harbison” received a Grammy nomination in the "Best Orchestral Performance" category.
