The Fellows who study at Etchings come from around the world, traveling from the US, from all parts of Europe, and have come as far as Singapore, Argentina, Brazil, Turkey, and Japan. Mentorship by some of the world's best composers affords a special intimacy and consideration for each composer. Fellows know they will receive expert performances as well as lasting bonds and collaborations built from the special festival atmosphere. Etchings Festival recordings find their way into graduate school applications, job applications and tenure portfolios.
