Conducting Program for Fellows and Colleagues
June 30–July 25
Available as a two-week session or as a full four-week session.
Fellows and Colleagues study with Maestro Farberman and guest conductors and composers in all Institute sessions.
Fellows work with the Institute Orchestra five days a week in morning sessions; Colleagues work with the Institute String Quintet in afternoon sessions four days a week and with the Institute Orchestra on Fridays. Those who attend the full four-week program have more than three hours of podium time.
Though the four-week program offers optimum opportunity for the study of varied repertoire with the entire faculty, students may choose to attend a consecutive two-week unit. Participants may also include the one-week program (Prelude, June 23–27) in Visual Score Study/Baton Placement and Body Movement Technique with the conducting program.
