Six students from Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music have been selected to participate in the New York Philharmonic Global Academy Fellowship Program. They are John Diodati (clarinet), Tamer Edlebi (oboe), Daniel Egan (trumpet), Kayla Faurie (flute), Robert O’Brien (percussion), and Benjamin Roidl-Ward (bassoon). They will travel to New York in April 2017 for a week of activities as Zarin Mehta Fellows, including training and playing alongside Philharmonic musicians, conducted by Composer-in-Residence Esa-Pekka Salonen; mock auditions; individual lessons and chamber music coaching by Philharmonic musicians; and participation in the Philharmonic’s educational programs. The Fellows will perform in a private chamber music concert, alongside Philharmonic musicians. The program is part of the New York Philharmonic Global Academy partnership between the Shepherd School and the Philharmonic, launched in fall 2015.
