Minnesota Orchestra launches fellowship program for African American, Latino American, and Native American musicians

Posted on: March 15, 2017

The deadline is April 21 for violinists, cellists, flutists, trombonists, bass trombonists, and tubists to apply for a Minnesota Orchestra’s Rosemary and David Good Fellowship, a two-year program designed to enhance the orchestral careers of African American, Latino American, and Native American musicians, and to encourage greater racial and cultural diversity in the orchestral field. Live auditions and interviews for finalists will be held June 12 at Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis, with travel and lodging provided. The fellowship comes with an annual salary guarantee of $40,000 with benefits, and a minimum of 54 services per season with the orchestra. A two-year fellowship for one musician will begin in September 2017, and a second musician will be hired beginning in 2018-19, with the intention of continuing with two overlapping fellowship positions.
