Higher Education

Each season, 5HE partners with forward-thinking universities and conservatories nationwide for short and long-term residencies that redefine the training process for emerging artists, and create new avenues for community engagement.

Residency activities include:

  • Performances
  • Training workshops
  • Side-by-side education and outreach activities
  • Custom-built civic practice performance projects
  • Comprehensive curriculum design

Fifth House Ensemble’s creative energy and enthusiasm is unmatched by other ensembles, a key trait that makes them a stand-out ensemble. Their messages resonated clearly with our students, and left a lasting impact on our students – NEC students are still talking about this event seven months later!
