     JULY 15 - JULY 28 2017

Looking for ways to give back to your community through your music? Ever wonder how you could make your chamber music concerts more interesting for your audiences? Look no further! Project 440's Community Engagement and Interactive Performance Residency at the Philadelphia International Music Festival will address all of these questions and answer many, many more! We'll show you how serving your community through music is not only fun but an invaluable tool in your own growth as a musician.

We are stoked to be working with the Philadelphia International Music Festival (PIMF) during the summer of 2017! Located on the beautiful campus of Bryn Mawr College, in the quaint suburb of Bryn Mawr, PA, PIMF offers student musicians from around the world the unique opportunity of spending up to four weeks immersed in music education and performance training with members of the world-renowned Philadelphia Orchestra.

The 21st Century Musician embraces artistry and service equally.
— Joseph Conyers, Executive Director, Project 440 | Assistant Principal Bass, The Philadelphia Orchestra | Music Director, Philadelphia All City Orchestra

The Project 440 track is by audition only and is open to musicians 13-18 years old participating in the Symphony or Symphonic Winds & Concert Band Program at PIMF. 

SPACE IS LIMITED! Project 440 will present to 20 outstanding young musicians at PIMF our hands-on, industry-specific mentoring and training in Community Engagement & Interactive Performance. As part of the Project 440 Chamber Music Track, students accepted into the program will perform in hospitals, libraries, and other community sites in and around PIMF's Bryn Mawr, PA location.

Through participation in the Project 440 Chamber Program, I got to meet new people and design a fun interactive performance. Not only was it helpful in learning how to convey musical ideas and motifs, it provided a space where we could all contribute ideas and build what we wanted. Iā€™m definitely excited to play and learn with Project 440 in the future.ā€
