Faculty members work with Asian Youth Orchestra

Peabody faculty members Jane Marvine, Steven Barta, Edward Hoffman and James Olin spent three weeks in Hong Kong this summer preparing the Asian Youth Orchestra for their annual concert tour of Asia. The Asian Youth Orchestra is a tuition free program comprised of students aged 17-27 from ten different Asian countries, many of whom are on the cusp of winning professional orchestra jobs. Alumni of the Asian Youth Orchestra hold positions in orchestras throughout the world including the Hong Kong Philharmonic, the Malaysian Philharmonic, the Philippine Philharmonic, the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, the National Symphony of Taiwan and many others.
