The concert is part of the New York Philharmonic Global Academy Fellowship Program, a new approach to preparing the next generation of world-class musicians for successful careers. The Shepherd School is the first U. S. conservatory program to partner with the New York Philharmonic in this innovative initiative. The six Rice students were selected by audition to take lessons, rehearse and play alongside New York Philharmonic musicians as Zarin Mehta Fellows. The 2018 fellows are violinist Chloe Yeseul Gam, bassist Andrew Keller, cellist Andrew Laven, violist Samuel Pedersen, violist Erica Schwartz, and violinist Siyu Zhang.

Enjoy a post-concert reception where you’ll have the chance to meet these up-and-coming talents and talk with Robert Yekovich, dean of The Shepherd School of Music. The Shepherd School students will be performing May 3-5 and 8 alongside the New York Philharmonic, read more here.
