BluePrint Fellowship Concert
The Juilliard School and National Sawdust Ensemble
6pm doors • 7pm show
The BluePrint Fellowship, a new National Sawdust initiative in collaboration with Juilliard, is a dual-track career, project mentoring, and commissioning course developed to support student composers.
For the fellowship’s inaugural season, Juilliard composition students will present their commissioned BluePrint projects, for an exciting mix of voice, dance, electronics, and chamber ensemble, performed by both Juilliard students and the National Sawdust Ensemble.
Project mentors for the fellowship, spearheaded by Composer, Co-Founder, and Artistic Director of National Sawdust Paola Prestini, include leading women composers such as Prestini, Claire Chase, Reena Esmail, Nathalie Joachim, Laura Kaminsky, and Alex Temple.
The BluePrint Fellowship is generously supported by the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation.
