Dear Friends,

As an avid music lover, I am proud to serve on the Executive Committee and support this incredible organization. I hope you will join me and become a member NOW.

Friends of New World Symphony is an 800 members- strong organization comprised of culture-seeking young professionals from Miami and New York City who support New World Symphony. Friends events showcase NWS fellows performing classical favorites and avant-garde fusions of electronic, hip-hop, jazz and rock.

The New World Symphony is dedicated to the artistic, professional and personal development of outstanding young musicians. Our fellowship program provides top graduates of music programs in the United States and abroad the opportunity to enhance their musical education with the finest professional training. After an intensive three-year program of performance and training, NWS fellows emerge from the experience prepared for leadership positions in orchestras and ensembles around the world. In the 16 years since our founding, more than 640 alumni have established successful careers in music, at an impressive 95 percent placement rate. In hopes of joining this unique program, more than 1,000 musicians compete each year for about 35available fellowships.
