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, participating conductors will focus on Mendelssohn's choral-orchestral masterwork, Elijah. A chorus and professional orchestra will be in residence, and the Academy culminates with a final performance in historic Hill Auditorium. 

A world-class faculty offers podium coaching, video review sessions, individual instruction, and forums on topics such as performance practice, score preparation, and orchestral rehearsal procedures.

The Conducting Academy includes a Symposium Track based on the University of Michigan's annual adult summer intensive program.

Apply to participate in the Symposium Track!

Fellow and Scholar applications are now closed.
