The Sydney Symphony Fellowship program has been designed to give young pre-professional musicians the best springboard to a career in music.
Around 86% of our alumni are employed by orchestras in Australia and around the world.
Working alongside our musicians, Sydney Symphony Fellows perform in our mainstage concerts, and receive coaching from Orchestra members and guest artists.
Fellows bring their newly enhanced playing skills and experience to the concert hall stage, performing as part of the Orchestra across our mainstage series and as members of chamber music ensembles. Fellows also join the Orchestra for performances in regional centres as well as our community and education programs.
The experience I got playing in the Sydney Symphony Orchestra [as a Fellow] with such world-class colleagues was incredibly inspiring and the opportunity to play so much chamber music throughout the year was an amazing privilege.
