InterPlay, a collaboration between the Peabody Institute and University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC), began in 2016 to connect Peabody graduate students with UMBC undergraduate music majors. The partnership has evolved to feature a mentored, four-session teaching project for Peabody graduate students in collaboration with UMBC faculty. Teaching projects to date have included master classes, lessons for specified instruments, chamber music coaching, orchestral sectionals, audition preparation seminars, improvisation workshop, career advising, and mock audition panels.
