From its inception, the Atlantic Music Festival has established a unique tradition of nurturing young emerging artists through its fellowship program. Open to instrumentalists (see below), composers, conductors, and opera singers, fellows receive complete financial coverage of tuition, housing, and meals during the four weeks of residency.
As the central focus of the festival, AMF pays the highest regard for each fellow's individual contributions and talents. Fellows are included as featured performers in recitals and chamber concerts, and as members of an all-fellowship 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.
