Through a partnership between Oklahoma State University, the Tulsa Symphony Orchestra, and the Patti Johnson Wilson Foundation, the OSU Greenwood School of Music’s String Area offers four graduate string fellowship positions to violin, viola, cello and bass candidates. A two-year program, this fellowship will allow qualified applicants to pursue a graduate degree at OSU while performing with the Tulsa Symphony Orchestra. Accepted applicants can expect to receive tuition waivers as well as health benefits while they are enrolled in the program. Fellows will engage in mentorship and performance opportunities with the Tulsa Symphony’s principal players and administrative team, to include masterclasses, mock auditions, and job shadowing, as well as participate in special events sponsored by the McKnight Center for the Performing Arts.
