PMF AMERICA is comprised of principal players from the Philadelphia Orchestra, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, and other major orchestras of the United States. Though unable to be with the PMF Orchestra in person this year, they will instruct members of the Academy one-on-one online. In addition, faculty ensembles in their respective locations will record performance videos, and these “digital concerts” will be streamed on the PMF website.
