Overview

From its inception, the Atlantic Music Festival has established a unique tradition of nurturing young emerging artists through its fellowship program.

Open to instrumentalists, composers, conductors, and singers, fellows receive complete financial coverage of tuition, housing, and meals during the six weeks of residency.

AMF pays the highest regard for each fellow's contributions and talents. Fellows perform as featured artists in our recitals, chamber concerts, and as members of our orchestra.

With frequent opportunities to collaborate with AMF's artist-faculty members and other programs within the festival, residency at AMF is an excellent opportunity for young musicians to develop the necessary skills needed upon entering the world of professional concert artists.
