Our Fellows have the opportunity to be inspired by musical greats – while on the path to becoming leading musicians themselves.

For over 20 years, we've proudly watched our Fellows go on to enjoy highly successful careers in Australia and abroad.

The Fellowship program lays the groundwork through intense preparation and training including masterclasses with globally renowned artists, mentoring by Sydney Symphony’s musicians, and the opportunity to play in chamber and mainstage and regional orchestral performances.

Throughout the year-long journey, we support our Fellows with further development of technical skills, insights into career management and preparation for auditions to help develop sustainable and rewarding careers.
