Symphony Hall, home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

In Wednesday’s (2/7) Violin Channel, an unsigned article states, “Applications are now open for the Resident Fellowship Program run by the Boston Symphony Orchestra (BSO). These fellowships create an opportunity for up to two early-career orchestral players from marginalized communities to undertake a one-year appointment as a musician in the BSO. The Resident Fellows will perform with the BSO during 20 weeks of the orchestra’s 2024/25 Symphony, Pops, and Tanglewood seasons. In addition, they will play in chamber music groups with the musicians of the orchestra and will undertake touring where possible. As well as a weekly salary, the Fellows will receive an accommodation stipend, a stipend for audition travel, comprehensive insurance coverage, and a stipend for private lessons. Applications are open to violinists, violists, cellists, and bassists who are from backgrounds that have been historically underrepresented in symphony orchestras. Applicants should submit some biographical information, a resume, some essay responses, and the pre-screening audition excerpts. You can find out more about the Fellowship at The deadline for applications is March 18, 2024.”
