Fresh Inc is open to ensembles whose members are 18 years of age and over, whether enrolled in a degree program or pursuing their craft independently. Ensembles can include any instruments, and draw their repertoire from any musical tradition.
Please note that if you play an instrument outside of Fifth House Ensemble's core roster, you are welcome to request private lessons with any member of the group.
All applicants are considered for merit-based scholarships as part of the application process. This year, our Fresh Voices program offers dedicated scholarship support to participants who are female, artists of color, and/or LGBTQ-identified, to build leadership capacity, career advancement, and entrepreneurial skills among artists underrepresented in our field.
Applications are due February 1, 2022, and notifications will be sent via email by February 15, 2022.
