The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra cares deeply about advancing the vitality and relevance of symphonic music. An important step on this journey is creating a stronger association between the musicians and the communities we serve. Since its inception, the TDP has served talented young musicians, and the entire field of classical music, by providing the highest level of musical training to hundreds of African-American and Latino students. Nearly 100 fellows have graduated from the program and gone on to attend top music schools, including The Julliard School, Curtis Institute of Music, Manhattan School of Music and the Peabody Institute and more. This strong educational foundation had led many to careers in orchestras, teaching and performance.
