For the third year, the Iris Artist Fellowship residency program offers emerging musicians a year of outstanding performance experience alongside guided opportunities to exercise their passion for community service through music education. Chosen through national auditions, this year’s Fellows are Carrington Truehart, cello and Amaro Dubois, viola. Together they keep a busy schedule mentoring young musicians in Memphis area schools, creating community-building music opportunities, and performing as members of Iris Orchestra and as a chamber ensemble.


This season, in addition to the Saturday evening orchestral performances at GPAC, Iris Orchestra is offering a Sunday afternoon music series at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art featuring solo and chamber music. This Sunday series features the same fabulous guest artists from the Saturday evening orchestral series in addition to a smaller ensemble of Iris Orchestra musicians. Please note: the Saturday series and Sunday series are separate and do not feature the same repertoire. To purchase a subscription to either/both series, please call the Iris Orchestra office at (901) 751-7669.
