Orchestral Conducting Seminar

Offering only 5 openings, the Orchestral Conducting Seminar has daily and multi-discipline interaction for a select group of young conductors. Participants receive daily conducting master classes, observe faculty interacting with the FEMUSC Symphony Orchestra, and work hands-on with three chamber orchestras, with scheduled rehearsals and performances. This practical training with actual orchestras is supervised by the conducting faculty. Besides the daily master classes, Orchestra Conducting Seminar participants observe other instrumental faculty, studying performances practices and their use in orchestra rehearsals. In 2019, the Orchestral Conducting Seminar will be led by Gregory Carreño, from the El Sistema in Venezuela.
