Chesapeake Orchestra Fellows


The Chesapeake Orchestra Fellows are a group of young professional musicians, and represent a new program for the Chesapeake Orchestra. They were selected through National auditions and professional references. Most of these students are finishing their graduate degrees. This year, these students comprised a small Baroque Style Chamber Orchestra and performed in chamber music concerts. While in Alba, Italy they joined in the Romanian State Symphony, and they are here in residence now performing in the Chesapeake Orchestra and throughout the summer they will be offering chamber music concerts. The Program was supported by Chesapeake Orchestra Board members.
