The Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University and El Paso Pro-Musica, under the artistic direction of Peabody alumnus and world renowned cellist, Zuill Bailey, are preparing to launch the second season of the Young Artist Development Series.
The program is designed to bring the study of musical performance beyond mastery of technique and musicianship and into the context of community engagement.
“I am thrilled to once again create unique scenarios and inspiration for a new generation of performers like the Marquee Brass,” says Bailey. We are working to show all of the amazing Young Artist Development Series recipients more about a life in music and how they too can work to enrich the lives of others, engage communities and to show them how communities unite and lives are transformed through the power of music.”
The second recipients of the internship are the “Marquee Brass,” an energetic quintet of graduate and doctoral students at the Peabody Conservatory.
The ensemble was selected by a team from Peabody, Zuill Bailey and El Paso Pro-Musica Executive Director Felipa Solis based on their musicianship, artistic collaboration, communication skills and experience in connecting with diverse audiences.
The Marquee Brass will travel to El Paso for a week of performance and community engagement experience from November 7-12.
Their internship will include musical outreach, both at schools and public venues including master classes at the University of Texas at El Paso, concert appearances in El Paso and Las Cruces, New Mexico and special presentations.
They will appear on KTEP and network television affiliates in the region in performance and to discuss their participation in the YADS. The quintet will work alongside El Paso Pro-Musica Artistic Director Zuill Bailey, who will teach them the tools of making music accessible to all, and making community engagement a part of their respective careers.
