Overview

We believe in the value of creating a learning space for conductors through theory classes and conducting practices (with choir), the two pillars that support this course. New this year, we are increasing the number of coaches and we are extending the length of the course.

This intensive course is designed for conductors with experience.

Contents: Conducting level: intermediate to advanced.

The pilot choir will be LDO, which will be structured in different formations and sizes depending on the type of piece being studied.

The subjects to be studied in the morning sessions will be: gesture technique, analysis and preparation of pieces, repertoire assembly, research of reference repertoire and rehearsal technique.

The afternoon sessions will be devoted to conducting practices with the choir.
