    A laboratory for the way music is taught, presented and experienced, the New World Symphony consists of young musicians who are granted fellowships lasting up to three years. The fellowship program offers in-depth exposure to traditional and modern repertoire, professional development training and personalized experiences working with leading guest conductors, soloists and visiting faculty. Relationships with these artists are extended through NWS's extensive distance learning via the internet. Introduced during the 2009-10 season, the Epstein Family Foundation MusicLab program is changing the way students in Miami-Dade County experience music education. Our academic season residency program brings the expertise of New World Symphony Fellows directly into the classroom, giving students a hands-on experience in the field of music performance, alongside a variety of supportive activities for personal enrichment. In providing this service, the New World Symphony is building a better community-one that values the benefits of an arts education as part of the public school curriculum.

    This program currently serves students of four public schools and programs in the Miami-Dade area.
