The New World Symphony, America’s Orchestral Academy (NWS), offered its Fellows several opportunities to create musical interactions with audiences inside the concert hall and in the community. These opportunities—collectively referred to as the New Audience Fellow Initiative—include Community Projects, Double Take Concerts, and Affinity Concerts.
NWS is a laboratory for how classical music is taught, presented and experienced in the 21st century. To create new points of entry into classical music for newer, younger, and more diverse audiences, NWS strives to imagine and present concert experiences that intentionally depart from traditional performances. In that spirit, the New Audience Fellow Initiative challenges Fellows to experiment by designing (with staff help) their own concerts and events.
