If you're a young, talented musician and aspire to join a symphony orchestra one day, there's one place where you want to summer.
The center was founded 71 years ago by the legendary Russian-born conductor Serge Koussevitzky. One of Koussevitzky's early students was Leonard Bernstein, who would later return to help develop the center's programs along with Aaron Copland. Twenty percent of today's American symphony orchestra musicians are graduates of the program. Among them are composers John Adams, Lukas Foss, Oliver Knussen, and Burt Bacharach; conductor (and former BSO music director) Seiji Ozawa; soprano Dawn Upshaw; jazz and classical trumpeter/composer Wynton Marsalis; and dozens of other familiar names, many of whom also return as regular and guest faculty. bso.org.
