NWS is please to announce percussion auditions in May, 2021.  For these auditions, we are asking that applicants submit four videos, each with specific repertoire requirements which you will find by visiting

As a Fellow, you will be performing with an exceptional orchestra, and work with an international roster of conductors and soloists, including ten weeks each season with Michael Tilson Thomas. Also, over 100 of the world’s best orchestral musicians and experts in the field visit each year as faculty.
