Barbara Soroca, Stamford Symphony’s CEO and President announced that Connecticut’s premier professional orchestra has created a partnership with Connecticut’s premier arts university, The HARTT School. This partnership will focus on Training and Mentorship of their music student fellows.

“We are excited to introduce a program of this caliber to the students at HARTT School of Music. This contact with professional musicians is preparation for when they graduate and will be developing their orchestra career.” – Barbara Soroca, CEO and President, Stamford Symphony

Our first annual Mentorship Program afforded Chaeyong Son, violinist and Jinyoung Son, cellist to perform in the Stamford Symphony for the March 1st and 2nd concerts. The two student fellows were chosen by blind audition and then, were prepared for the concerts by the HARTT School faculty.

In addition to the performance experience, fellows benefited from a mentorship experience where Symphony principal musicians and their colleagues met with the students to share their perspectives on creating a career in an orchestra. They also offered musical coaching. To round out the experience, the fellows spent two nights in New York City where they rehearsed with the orchestra, attended a live musical performance, and spent more time with the members of the orchestra as well as some individual time with the Music Director, Eckart Preu and CEO, Barbara Soroca. This experience was very well received and met the goal of the Partnership.
