Boston Symphony Orchestra Tanglewood Music Center Fellowship

Young Artist Program
Boston, MA USA
Young Artist Program


Vocal Fellows participate in song performances from the central canon and beyond, coached by faculty members such as Tony Arnold, Stephanie Blythe, Margo Garrett, Randall Scarlata, Alan Smith, and Dawn Upshaw; vocal chamber music, collaborating with TMC instrumentalists, from both the standard and contemporary repertoire; performances with the TMC Orchestra; an intensive exploration of Bach cantatas, led by composer and Bach specialist John Harbison; projects during the world-renowned Festival of Contemporary Music and throughout the summer, often including world premieres of TMC-commissioned works. The balance of assignments is based on the determination of the faculty during the audition process.

The Vocal Arts Program includes weekly studio classes and master-classes with major artists visiting the Boston Symphony and with resident faculty, rounding out a summer that offers each singer a welcoming space to collaborate and perform at the highest level.
