Build choral-orchestral skills and advance your career in a supportive learning environment with master teachers.
Chorus America’s Conducting Academy gives choral conductors a unique opportunity to develop choral-orchestral skills and enhance their university training.
During this week-long program, all participants will focus on two complete choral-orchestral works: the Haydn Lord Nelson Mass and the Duruflé Requiem, with a special emphasis on conducting and rehearsing string orchestras. A professional orchestra and chorus will be in residence, and the Academy culminates with a final performance of both masterworks.
The Conducting Academy is hosted by California State University, Fullerton. A world-class, accessible faculty offers podium coaching, daily video review sessions, individual instruction, and symposia on topics such as string techniques, classical period performance practice, score preparation, and orchestral rehearsal procedures.
The application period for Conducting Fellows and Conducting Scholars has closed, but you can still participate as a Daily Observer.
The 2017 Conducting Academy is sponsored by California State University, Fullerton and the Pacific Chorale. Funding support provided by Chorus America's John Alexander Conducting Faculty Chair endowment and the National Endowment for the Arts.
