NZSO FELLOWSHIP PROGRAMME

"The NZSO Fellowship opportunity has been an enriching and awe-inspiring experience! I have learnt so much about orchestral playing, rehearsal etiquette, touring, and all the work that goes on behind the scenes, and I have met some amazing musicians along the way. I would highly recommend this programme to anyone trying to make a career out of orchestral performance" – Patrick Hayes, 2018 Fellowship Student

If you are thinking about an orchestral career, this is a great opportunity for you to hone your skills. Once you have been selected, you will get first hand practical experience of what it is like to work with a world class professional orchestra. During your year-long association with the Orchestra you will work with NZSO principals, observe and rehearse with the NZSO and interact with international conductors and soloists.
