National Symphony Orchestra Music Teacher Fellowship applications due by June 10
FRANKFORT, Ky. — The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the National Symphony Orchestra and the Kentucky Arts Council encourage Kentucky music teachers working with orchestral music in k-12 public and private schools to apply for the Music Teacher Fellowship that will take place in Washington, D.C., during the summer of 2011.
The four-week summer program involves working with the National Symphony Orchestra education staff to plan instructional activities focusing on the fellow’s chosen areas of interest. The selected teacher will be awarded a cash stipend and have all expenses paid, including travel to and from Washington, D.C. The total value of the fellowship will not exceed $5,000.
The Teacher Fellowship is a continuation of the National Symphony Orchestra American Residency Project of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. The American Residency took place in Kentucky in 2011 with the Kentucky Arts Council as the in-state partner.
The Kentucky Arts Council is coordinating the application process for Kentucky music educators. For more information about the fellowship, the criteria for selection and how to apply, contact Tamara Coffey at email@example.com or 888-833-2787, ext. 479. Applications must be received in the Kentucky Arts Council offices by June 10, 2011.
The Kentucky Arts Council, the state arts agency, creates opportunities for Kentuckians to value, participate in and benefit from the arts. Kentucky Arts Council funding is provided by the Kentucky General Assembly and the National Endowment for the Arts.
The National Symphony Orchestra Education Program is a component of the Kennedy Center Education Department. For more than 35 years, the Kennedy Center has provided quality arts educational experiences through performances, residencies, workshops, conferences, career development programs, symposia and online and print resources.
