Gabrielle Skinner, Viola & Orpheus Fellow

The Orpheus Fellowship in a one-year program that provides an immersive experience with the Orpheus Process. Fellows are emerging artists from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in classical music who gain a 360 degree view of administration, fundraising, performance, and concert production, culminating in a self-produced recital in New York City. 

En Root  is a collective of Black and Latinx classical musicians that work to transform American classical music into a culturally diverse and vibrant community. En Root aims to inspire both youth and cultural institutions by celebrating the multiplicity of voices in America through its educational programming, collaborations, and dynamic performances.
