About the Fellowship

Beginning in the 2009-10 season, the Taki Concordia Fellowship expanded into a two-year award that includes six (6) conducting weeks with different orchestras, plus a fundamental exposure to gain experience with marketing, fund-raising, Board development and general orchestra management.

Prestigious conductors and orchestras have made a commitment to include mentoring through the TCCF program. The new TCCF term is spread over this 2-year seasonal time span; thus allowing for more flexible scheduling with our host orchestras and conductors, as well as intense study with founding director, Marin Alsop.

The TCCF honorarium is $7,500 per season. In addition, funding for travel and accommodations is provided in part by shared resources from TCCF host orchestras and community based business groups.

With your support, TCCF can give these talented young women their opportunity to further develop and explore a better understanding of the unique and challenging roles for conductors of the 21st century.

Please join us by making your contribution today to help build our foundation for the future.
