Become a Fellow

Ensemble Connect is a two-year fellowship program for the finest young professional classical musicians in the United States that prepares them for careers combining musical excellence with teaching, community engagement, advocacy, music entrepreneurship, and leadership. It offers top-quality performance opportunities, intensive professional development, and the opportunity to partner throughout the fellowship with a New York City public school. Ensemble Connect selects up to 20 musicians every two years. Fellows are selected based on their musicianship; commitment to music education and audience engagement; leadership qualities; and aptitude for teamwork.

The application for Ensemble Connect’s 2018–2020 fellowship positions is now available.

Application Requirements

  1. Applications will be accepted for the following instruments only: flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn, trumpet, tenor trombone, bass trombone, percussion, piano, violin, viola, cello, and bass.
  2. Applicants must have earned at least an undergraduate degree or its equivalent by September 2018, but a graduate degree is preferred. You cannot be enrolled in a degree program while participating in Ensemble Connect. (If you are a doctoral candidate, you must have completed your course work.) International applicants must have graduated from an American educational institution and be fluent in English, both written and spoken. If you are an international applicant, please be sure to read the Visa Information for International Applicants.
  3. Two letters of recommendation will be required from applicants who are invited to Ensemble Connect’s live auditions March 5–9, 2018. Upon notification that you have advanced to pre-screening, you will be able to login to your Acceptd account to provide the names and email addresses of your two recommenders. Acceptd will contact your recommenders directly at the email addresses you have provided. Recommenders will be asked to upload their letters of recommendation. Recommenders may be the same or different from the references listed on your résumé.
  4. A résumé must be provided that includes the applicant’s education, training, performance, and teaching experience. Please include the names and contact information of two references whom you give us permission to contact.
  5. A statement of purpose (no more than 700 words) must be provided. It should include, but not be limited to: what interests you about Ensemble Connect; what you hope gain from the experience; and what kinds of relevant performance, teaching, or community engagement experience you possess already. Discuss why you feel Ensemble Connect will be critical to the growth of your career.
  6. All applicants must upload live, unedited pre-screening recording selections that represent their most advanced technical and musical capabilities. The recording selections must include accompaniment (when applicable) and date from within the last two years. Video recording is preferred, but audio will be accepted. Excerpts will not be considered unless otherwise stated. It is highly preferred that each selection is uploaded as a separate file. Pre-screening material will be evaluated by a panel of top-level professional musicians. The pre-screening panel will remain anonymous and has the right to deny a live audition to anyone who does not submit repertoire according to the requirements listed below.
  7. All application materials must be submitted no later than 11:59 PM on December 1, 2017. Materials received after the application deadline will not be considered. Pre-screening results will be communicated via email by February 1, 2018. Applicants who pass the pre-screening will be notified about live audition procedures at that time. Auditions will take place in New York City from March 5–9, 2018. Please note that we cannot accommodate requests to change live audition dates or times.
