The Blueprint Fellowship is an annual National Sawdust mentorship and commissioning initiative that connects Juilliard student composers with career and project mentorship, culminating in a concert of their commissioned projects.
In partnership with The Juilliard School for the fellowship’s second season, selected Juilliard composition students Amelia Brey, Corey Chang, Horacio Fernández Vázquez, Christopher Jessup, and Su Jin Kang will present their Blueprint projects on National Sawdust’s digital stage. This exciting mix of voice, dance, electronics, and pierrot chamber ensemble will be performed by the National Sawdust Ensemble members, and Juilliard student musicians.
Project mentors for the fellowship, spearheaded by Composer, Co-Founder, and Artistic Director of National Sawdust Paola Prestini, include leading womxn composers such as Nathalie Joachim, Claire Chase, Reena Esmail, Laura Kaminsky, and Amy Beth Kirsten.
The Blueprint Fellowship is generously supported by the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation.
