Kelly Newberry

Graduate student and Peruvian-American mezzo-soprano, Kelly Newberry, has been selected as one of only 25 students to attend the prestigious Tanglewood Music Center this summer as a Vocal Arts Fellow. Located in Lenox, Massachusetts, the Tanglewood Music Center is an annual summer program offering emerging professional musicians the opportunity to participate in performances, master classes, and workshops alongside some of the world’s finest musicians and educators. The Center operates as a part of the Tanglewood Music Festival, an outdoor concert series and the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra (BSO). Serge Koussevitzky, the Boston Symphony Orchestra's music director from 1924 to 1949, founded the TMC with the intention of creating a premier music academy where, with the resources of a great symphony orchestra at their disposal, young musicians would sharpen their skills under the tutelage of Boston Symphony Orchestra musicians and specially invited artists.
