FROM THE DIRECTOR Friends! What began in the summer of 1988 as a one-off gathering of young orchestral musicians from around the country has turned into a thriving ecosystem of learning, innovation and performance. Now in our 32nd year, the National Orchestral Institute + Festival is defining what it means to be a 21st century musician. This means not only presenting stellar performances, but making a commitment to rethink old models, celebrate diverse voices and engage with our community to broadly share our talents. Among the accomplished student performers on stage at NOI+F are the future leaders of orchestras, founders of chamber groups and entrepreneurs of yet-to-be-imagined businesses and arts organizations. Your very presence here secures a bright future for orchestral music and the ambitions of these gifted musicians. Over the course of this month, I encourage you to embrace a spirit of discovery by meeting the musicians after concerts, hearing them in open rehearsals, masterclasses and in our SPARK! Lounge, and exploring with us exciting repertoire by todayâ€™s most vital composers. Most importantly, I invite you to join us in celebrating the extraordinary music that brings us together each summer and the future we are building together. Welcome!

ABOUT THE INSTITUTE
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The University of Maryland’s National Orchestral Institute + Festival is committed to advancing the learning, leadership and entrepreneurship of musicians, conductors, composers, arts managers and audiences through electrifying performances, stimulating artistic exchange and robust community engagement. Through local and national partnerships, the National Orchestral Institute enriches the artistic and cultural opportunities for the campus and the community that surrounds and supports the university. Founded in 1988, the National Orchestral Institute pairs admitted students with an international cast of conductors and faculty mentors. Members are selected from a rigorous crosscountry audition tour and perform at The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center and throughout the community. Alumni have gone on to win highly competitive position in the world’s prestigious orchestras.
Inspiring artists. World-renowned conductors. Adventurous music. National Orchestral Institute + Festival student musicians are the finest in the country. They gather for a month-long festival of electrifying performances that push the boundaries of the traditional orchestral ecosystem. Through a series of large ensemble, chamber and solo performances, these musicians play with commitment and prowess, and redefine the symphonic experience. Throughout the Festival, audiences actively participate up-close in pre-concert chats, open masterclasses and open rehearsals. Members of the Festival’s community energized by the orchestra of the future also come together to IGNITE artistic and community projects that serve student musicians and the community. Remember, the music begins only when you arrive!

What is a Concertmaster? Lights dim. Chatter ends. And then, the stage door swings open. Out comes a presence, a force.
She gracefully bows and stands firmly in front of her orchestra awaiting the oboe that will tune the ensemble. The conductor acknowledges her with a firm handshake before the music comes to life. She is Madeline Adkins, concertmaster of the prestigious Utah Symphony and proud NOI+F alumna. But, what is a concertmaster? A concertmaster is the principal violinist in a modern orchestra and the chief conduit of communication between a conductor and an orchestra. On stage, concertmasters work tirelessly to serve their orchestra, lead by example, play solos, tune the orchestra and create healthy working relationships between the ensemble and music director. Behind the scenes, concertmasters invest many hours in conversation with principal string players to synchronize the direction of bowings, and to coordinate other musical markings. “It’s a multifaceted position. Sometimes, the work is practical and musicbased,” says Adkins. “Sometimes the work is philosophical and a matter of managing complex relationships between key stakeholders.” The word “concertmaster” is rooted in 17th century European tradition of Baroque performance in which a violinist would lead the ensemble from their chair during the performance. The role of today’s baton-leading conductors rose in popularity throughout the 19th century. By mid-century, most conductors had assumed their new roles with concertmasters being auxiliary instead of principal leaders (Grove Music). Winning this reinvented but still invaluable position is an arduous journey that requires decades of learning. Dallas Symphony Orchestra concertmaster and NOI+F ‘19 faculty member

AT THE GRAMMYS In June 2015, the National Orchestral Institute + Festival began a multi-year partnership with NAXOS Records, the world’s leading classical musical label. Through this unique partnership, NOI+F student musicians record an album of American music that is released in more than 40 countries worldwide. The only recording collaboration of its kind in the country, the partnership resulted in a “Best Orchestral Performance” Grammy nomination for 2018 album Ruggles, Stucky & Harbison: Orchestral Works. Conducted by Albany Symphony’s renowned Music Director David Alan Miller, the album was recorded at The Clarice in June 2017. The musicians had only worked together for two weeks when the recording took place. “This is a wonderful testament to the talent and passion of the students,” says Director of NOI+F Richard Scerbo. NOI+F students were nominated alongside some of the country’s leading orchestras including Pittsburgh Symphony, Boston Symphony, San Francisco Symphony and Seattle Symphony. NOI+F Orchestral Futurist Fellow Camille Jones, and University of Maryland student, shares, “I joined NOI when I was young, after my freshman year of college, and did not know I would be part of a nomination of this caliber. It’s a great accomplishment that I did not expect at this stage in my career!”

Combining the demands of chamber music with the precision of large scale symphonic repertorie, this special artistic exploration (on stage June 7) allows NOI+F’s young artists to craft their own interpretation. It ignites artistic ownership many have never experienced. “The concert opened a window that helped me find confidence and pride in my playing,” says Shannon Lock, who served as a concertmaster for Benjamin Britten’s Suite on English Folk Tunes,” in NOI+F’s 2018 unconducted concert.

NOI+F NEW PARTNERSHIPS This summer, the National Orchestral Institute + Festival begins a partnership with Sound Impact (SI), a collective of musicians dedicated to igniting personal transformation of individuals in underserved communities. Sound Impact performance
NOI+F and SI will collaborate in Summer 2019 to guide NOI+F Fellowship Ensemble Adelphi Quartet in the curation of an educational residency in Washington, D.C.’s Youth Services Center at the Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services. Sound Impact and Adelphi Quartet will co-create a socially relevant curriculum that empowers incarcerated teenagers to find healthy channels to express their voices and expand their perspectives. This community-centered residency, “Use Your Voice,” will focus on self-expression and teamwork through a combination of interactive performances of classical, contemporary and popular music paired with writing exercises and collaborative activities. Founded in 2013, SI believes that music engagement is a vehicle to empower individuals to expand their perspectives, connect individuals of diverse ages and backgrounds and engage people with new experiences. SI’s various educational programs have served incarcerated youth in California, New Mexico and Washington, D.C. Formed in 2017 by cellist and NOI+F Orchestral Futurist Fellow Marza Wilks, the Adelphi Quartet was born from a dream of having a string quartet made up of underrepresented minorities with exceptional talent. Adelphi Quartet has given dozens of recitals throughout the D.C. area and has run educational programming in more than 15 different schools.

ORCHESTRAL LEARNING ALLIANCE
Hawaii Youth Symphony (HYS) and the National Orchestral Institute + Festival have partnered to create the Orchestral Learning Alliance (OLA) at the Pacific Music Institute. Launching summer 2019, this robust collaboration brings NOI+F students, faculty and alumni to Honolulu to serve as teachers and mentors to Hawaii’s young orchestral musicians. Eight current NOI+F students, five faculty members and five alumni will participate in the inaugural year. “For over 30 years, Hawaii Youth Symphony’s Pacific Music Institute has been a training ground for Hawaii’s most serious, young musicians,” says Randy Wong, President of Hawaii Youth Symphony and NOI+F alumnus (2003). “The acronym OLA is also the Hawaiian word for “life” and for members of HYS and NOI+F, music is life as we all share a common bond that helps bring people together.” Hawaii Youth Symphony’s Pacific Music Institute is an intensive summer program designed for students to hone their musical skills. Through OLA, students will have the opportunity to work with renowned guest artist faculty, many drawn from the NOI+F network of faculty and alumni. Many of these renowned musicians also have significant teaching presences in major universities and schools of music. “As musicians, we recognize the significance of collaboration and the positive impact that good mentorship has on those we have the privilege to reach,” says Richard Scerbo, Director of NOI+F. “We are delighted to begin this new journey with HYS to support more young musicians and their appreciation for the arts.” “We are absolutely thrilled to be a partner with such an amazing network of musicians and to have the opportunity to have them mentor our students here at HYS,” says University of Maryland graduate John Devlin, HYS Music Director and PMI Artistic Director. “OLA will empower young people to become better musicians, provide teaching fellows with the means to improve their skills as educators and enable our organization to open new doors for students locally, nationally and abroad.” Pacific Music Institute rehearsing in sectionals

RETURNING TO NOI+F WOLF TRAP OPERA Wolf Trap Opera’s UNTRAPPED series, which takes thrilling vocal music to spaces beyond the company’s Northern Virginia home, continues its collaboration with NOI+F! These talented vocal artists, the Philharmonic and conductor John Morris Russell open the 2019 Festival with George Gershwin’s American opera Porgy and Bess. On June 22, UNTRAPPED makes an encore at The Clarice with a semi-staged performance of Maurice Ravel’s comedy L’heure espagnole.
INNOVATION STUDIO AT NOI+F NOI+F partners with UMD’s Academy for Innovation and Entrepreneurship to host a cohort of students dedicated to re-imagining the symphony orchestra. Musicians join with creative innovators from other fields of study to examine, rethink and renovate the orchestral experience through design thinking.

NOI+F ORCHESTRAL FUTURIST FELLOW NOI+F is pleased to announce 2019 Orchestral Futurist Fellow Camille Jones. This fellowship is in partnership with the Sphinx Organization, a national pioneer dedicated to transforming lives through the power of diversity in the arts. A University of Maryland violin major, Jonesâ€™ 13-month tenure allows her to participate in orchestral, administrative and community engagement experiences that will empower her to further pave her path in the nationâ€™s orchestral ecosystem.
David Alan Miller
We sat down with Grammy winning conductor David Alan Miller to discuss his experiences with the Institute + Festival!
What about NOI+F inspires you to return year after year? Well … everything! The musicians are incredibly vibrant. They are young. They are fresh. They are extremely idealistic about making music at its highest level. These musicians experience a number of fresh revelations at NOI+F. For me, it’s a privilege to have these first experiences with them.
What are you looking forward to in your 2019 residency? Working with Joan Tower. She’s smart, talented and fabulous. I’m also excited about Gershwin’s Concerto in F. Gershwin long ago entered the pantheon of great composers, but he is wildly misunderstood and often musically misinterpreted. Many ignore his original artistic markings, but what’s exciting about NOI+F’s concert is that we’re making a return to a scholarly edition that restores Gershwin’s original intention. And the greatest Gershwin pianist walking the earth is joining us! Gershwin, Kevin Cole and NOI+F are simply a dream come true!
You are a champion of recording music by American composers. Why is it important to continue this tradition of recording the country’s repertoire? Working with Albany Symphony, my home orchestra, we came together to make a commitment to recording music that is rarely or sometimes never recorded. In that golden era of orchestral recordings, ensembles produced many, many repeat recordings of traditional repertoire. So, throughout my work, I advocate for these rarely recorded American works instead. What elevates this promise even higher at NOI+F is the partnership with Naxos Records. Naxos’ global reach allows many around the world access to these sometimes little known American composers.
Having been the conductor on two Naxos recordings and working with the orchestra for many years, you are an esteemed NOI+F veteran! Tell us, what is your favorite NOI+F memory? Well, thank you! The experience that most touched me at NOI+F was recording John Corigliano’s Symphony No. 1, the first recording I made with the orchestra. There’s a cello duet movement in which the two players shine through on their own. I got the opportunity to coach the piece with Robert deMaine, principal cellist at Los Angeles Philharmonic. We worked with these two brilliant young cellists, Victor Minkle Huls and Ellen Gira, for almost three hours! Together, we dug deeply into the solos — it was very moving. The performance was dazzling! Not only did the musicians know their music, they had inhabited the score. This kind of collaborative approach just doesn’t happen in a professional orchestra. To me, this experience opened a new window of exploration and was a testament of what makes NOI+F so unique.

ALUMNI SCHOLARSHIP Boston native Paul Halberstadt (NOI+F 2017, â€˜18) began his violin studies when he was just four years old. His nearly twodecade journey with the violin has led him to the Eastman School of Music, where he is pursuing undergraduate music performance studies. He has funded his academic studies through a variety of meritbased scholarships that make it possible for him to continue growing as a musician without excessive out-of-pocket expenses for himself or his family.
I have a five siblings, so when I made it into Eastman, I knew I couldnâ€™t burden my parents with the full cost of my training. Paul Halberstadt
The National Orchestral Institute + Festival was Halberstadt’s first collegiate music festival. It would change the way he makes music forever. “NOI+F had an impact in virtually every aspect of my music career,” he shares. Opening night was a chance for Halberstadt to quickly learn and perform like professionals do. In addition, the conductorless Take the Reins concert awakened a sense of leadership and musical communication he had never experienced. “Having solo teachers advise me during ensemble rehearsals is virtually unheard of. Masterclasses. Seminars. Solo Coachings,” he says. “NOI+F was a holistic experience you rarely find in your training.” In addition to receiving scholarships to attend the Institute, housing expenses for Halberstadt’s residency were generously funded by NOI+F sponsors. “Being able to commit to NOI+F early on in my development was a career-changing gift. I would have been unable to attend NOI+F without sponsorship,” he adds. “I simply did not have the resources.” And, among the highlights of his time at NOI+F was the chance to connect with those who made his residency possible. Off-stage he was able to share a homemade meal with his sponsors: “It was the most amazing food I’ve had in years!” Halberstadt says. Since his time at NOI+F, he has continued to advance in his orchestral studies, working with violinist Joshua Bell and conductor David Zinman, as well as serving as a concertmaster with the Eastman Philharmonia. Halberstadt’s professional engagements have also included appearances with Glenn Falls Symphony, Rochester Philharmonic, ProMusica Chamber Orchestra and Symphonia Orchestra of Syracuse.

“The National Orchestral Institute + Festival is one of the region’s most treasured cultural and educational gems. Performances are all awe-inspiring. And, witnessing the growth and transformation of tomorrow’s orchestral stars is an absolute joy. I am honored to support the brilliant young minds who will elevate and transform the nation’s orchestras for generations to come.” Mary Anne Hakes Chair, IGNITE Group
