    Ensemble Connect’s relationship with fellows continues after they complete the program. Alumni return to perform with Ensemble Connect—formerly known as Ensemble ACJW—in New York City, serve as fellowship advisors to current fellows, participate in community engagement programs, and create collaborative music residencies worldwide. In recent seasons, alumni ensembles have participated in residencies and performed concerts through Carnegie Hall in Abu Dhabi, Iceland, South Africa, Spain, Mumbai, Tokyo, Mexico City, and Germany.

    Since completing the program, Ensemble Connect alumni have co-founded music ensembles and festivals such as Decoda (pictured: left), Scrag Mountain Music, Miami Chamber Music Society, and New York Chamber Musicians. They are members of orchestras and ensembles such as the New York Philharmonic, Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Orchestra of St. Luke’s, The Knights, Canadian Brass, and Bryant Park Quartet. Many alumni also hold faculty and guest artist teaching positions at US universities and colleges.
