WHIN Music Project invests in its youngest teachers through the Orchestrating Mentors program, which provides opportunities for young adults to develop their leadership, communication, and problem-solving skills through teaching, conducting and internship opportunities. Real work experiences improve these students’ long-term job prospects and bridge the social and economic divides present in our society.
The 2016 Orchestrating Mentors participants requested to have performing opportunities in addition to their professional work and, since early April, have been preparing for their first concert in collaboration with Soloists in America. The group will perform Brandenburg Concerto no. 3, “Five Pieces” by Shostakovich, as well as a handful of vocal pieces.
