Since 2002 our workshops have offered intense and focused conducting training and critique from the highest caliber conducting faculty in a non-competitive and supportive atmosphere. Past faculty include Larry Rachleff, Donald Schleicher, Gustav Meier, Otto-Werner Mueller, Carl St. Clair, Rossen Milanov, Virginia Allen, and Jacob Chi. Past host orchestras include the Bohuslav Martinu Philharmonic, the Orquestra filarmonica de Estado Chihuahua, the New Symphony Orchestra (Sofia), and the Czech Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra. Subjects include conducting technique, interpretation, score study, analysis, rehearsal technique and musician interaction. All participants receive hands-on and invaluable experience during professional orchestral sessions.
All sessions are recorded with professional video and sound which provides all participants with an invaluable learning tool and exceptional conducting footage. At the end of each conducting sessions, each participant will receive digital footage of that session. Everyone will have ample opportunity to view the footage during the course of the workshop. In addition to orchestra and sextet sessions, participants be able to meet with workshop faculty to discuss technique and to review session footage.
Whether you are highly trained conductor, a promising student, or an avid amateur, our workshops offer many opportunities to improve as a conductor. In order to provide the most enriching exprience for all participants, enrollment is limited.
