Orpheus Music Academy

Orpheus @ Mannes

A week-long chamber orchestra intensive in partnership with Mannes School of Music at The New School’s College of Performing Arts. 

Launched in 2019, Orpheus@Mannes teaches pre-professional musicians the Orpheus Process® and empowers them with communication and collaborative skills essential to thriving as artists and as people.

The program includes:

  • Instruction by Orpheus musicians on our conductorless rehearsal and performance model
  • Separate coaching sessions for a select “core” group of rotating musical leaders for each piece
  • Daily seminars by noted industry professionals on topics such as career development
  • Final performance at John L. Tishman Auditorium at the New School for Performing Arts

Orpheus@Mannes has truly been one of the few orchestral experiences I can describe as unique and special from any other performances I have been a part of. The level of skill paired with the openness and willingness to collaborate is not an experience you will find many other places.

Orpheus@Mannes was an inspiring and challenging chamber music experience that allowed me to communicate with all members of the orchestra. Everyone has a voice and contributes to the overall uniqueness and brilliance of the music making process. Our hard work and collaborations made the final performance just that much more special.
