Pegasus has long been engaged with young people, hosting annual student interns from Eastman’s Arts Leadership Program and inviting several young Developing Artists to perform alongside of our experienced roster. Pegasus Rising is a valuable performing opportunity for these young artists not only as musicians, but in their entrepreneurial career building. Rather than being simply hired to perform, Pegasus Rising young virtuosos are actively involved with the entire process of creating their concert, working closely with the Artistic Director as a mentor and using our resources and experience to guide their plans. The musicians are responsible for and learn about audience development, publicity, marketing, and artistic decisions that go into putting on their concert. We’d like to engage a whole new audience with our music. Our young performers offer a bridge into early music for people who like all styles of music. They will show that early music, even though very old, still sounds new!
