For 25 years, Jody Gatwood served as concertmaster of the National Philharmonic. At the end of our 2009-2010 season when Jody retired, Maestro Piotr Gajewski and the Board of Directors appointed him Concert Leader Emeritus. As an additional honor for this committed leader, teacher, and friend, the National Philharmonic created the Jody Gatwood Education Fund to support our learning and engagement initiatives including: “All Kids, All Free, All the Time” for youth ages 7-17; student concerts for all 2nd graders in partnership with Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) and the Music Center at Strathmore; Summer String Institutes; Youth Mentorship Program; and Masterclasses.
