BRITNEY ALCINE received her Master’s in Music in Orchestral Conducting at the University of Massachusetts Amherst under Morihiko Nakahara. She conducted the UMass Symphony Orchestra, All-University Orchestra, and was a teaching assistant for multiple courses. She is currently pursuing her Doctor of Musical Arts in Instrumental Conducting at The Hartt School under Edward Cumming.

Previously, Britney was appointed Conducting Apprentice with the New York Youth Symphony in 2015-2016, where she studied with Joshua Gersen and premiered works for chamber orchestra in concert. Britney has also worked in collaboration with instrumentalists and singers alike when she was the conductor for Avatar, The Last Airbender: The Musical in 2017. She continued her music directing efforts in her music education career while teaching at the Elizabeth Public Schools, being an elementary school music director of the chorus and recorder ensemble from 2017-2019. 


A native of New Jersey, Britney has always lived a life immersed in music. Although primarily a violist, Britney considers herself a multi-instrumentalist and multi-faceted musician, with experience playing instruments of the brass family, as well as viola, flute, percussion, and voice. She has performed extensively in ensembles that span from pit orchestra to marching band to choir. She looks to bring this wide breadth of experience to the podium at every opportunity.
