Myra Coveney has been named Principal Clarinet for The Conducting Institute’s lab orchestra, to take place in Ft. Worth, TX in June/July 2022. A paid fellowship, instrumentalists go through a national audition process to be selected for orchestral positions in The Conducting Institute (TCI) Lab Orchestra, whose primary purpose is a learning ensemble for conductors participating in The Conducting Institute program. Led by TCI’s conductor and founder, Miguel Harth-Bedoya, repertoire for this summer’s program includes major works by Copland, Revueltas, Haydn, Beethoven, Brahms, Dvorak, Errazuriz, Mendelssohn, Rossini, Tchaikovksy, and will feature concerto soloists selected from participants in the Piano Texas festival.
Selected as the 2022 recipient of the James R. Saker Symphonic Wind Ensemble Scholarship, Miss Coveney is student of UNO’s Artist-Professor of Clarinet, Dr. Emily McIvor. A native of Papillion, NE, Myra began her collegiate career at UNO in 2019 and has held the principal clarinet positions in both UNO’s Heartland Philharmonic Orchestra and Symphonic Wind Ensemble, and has also served as a core member of UNO’s woodwind quartet, “Four Omaha.” To learn more about The Conducting Institute Lab Orchestra Fellowship, visit https://conductinginstitute.org/programs/lab-orchestra-fellowship.
