The TMC offers a unique opportunity for emerging professional orchestra librarians of exceptional potential to study as a Fellow at Tanglewood.
Under the guidance of the BSO Principal Librarian, Wilson Ochoa, and BSO Assistant Librarian Mark Fabulich, the Orchestra Library Fellows will work with some of the world's most important conductors (which in 2017 include BSO Music Director Andris Nelsons, Stefan Asbury, Charles Dutoit, and Thomas Ades), preparing materials for the TMCO and for conducting and instrumental classes. They will also attend seminars on music acquisition and preparation, and may occasionally be asked to help with music preparation for BSO performances at Tanglewood.
The Library Fellow spends most of their day working in the TMC Orchestra Library inside Ozawa Hall, or attending rehearsals and performances in Ozawa, the Theatre, the Shed, and elsewhere as the library representative. In addition to work with the TMCO, each Fellow will be given significant time working in the Shed library during BSO rehearsals and on BSO music. When not fulfilling the responsibilities of the Fellowship, the Fellow has the opportunity to attend all TMC and BSO concerts, as well as many of the rehearsals and master-classes of other fellowship programs. The TMC Orchestra Library Fellow resides at Miss Hall's School with the other TMC Fellows.
