Applications now open for the Los Angeles Orchestra Fellowship

The USC Thornton School of Music, Inner City Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles (ICYOLA) and Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO) have teamed up to launch a post-graduate fellowship program for musicians from underrepresented communities on the verge of launching careers in orchestral performance.

The West Coast’s first comprehensive orchestral fellowship program for top-tier string musicians from underrepresented communities, The LA Orchestra Fellowship is a two-year orchestra intensive for musicians on violin, viola, and cello. Fellows will be mentored in chamber and orchestral performance and gain invaluable experience while training and playing alongside LACO musicians, faculty at USC Thornton, and guest artists.

Applications for the inaugural 2020 class of fellows are due December 31, 2017. Visit
