Conductors Institute

Conductors Institute of South Carolina

The world-renowned Conductors Institute of South Carolina has been on the must-do list for young aspiring and experienced conductors alike. Students of the institute receive a no-nonsense tutorial from conductors and composers with vast experience in the commercial, academic and professional worlds of music.

Guest conductors and composers are keenly aware of what it takes to succeed in a tough, competitive field and have shared their knowledge and expertise with institute participants from around the world for almost three decades.

Veteran conductors offer constructive criticism and encouragement, and each student has daily podium time focusing on the details of conducting enhancing skills to achieve a greater command with their orchestral forces.

No mirrors or recorded music mean that each day, as your peers observe, you’ll have the opportunity to conduct professional musicians who know the scores intimately. At the end of each day a video of your performance is available to study and assist you in preparing for another day on stage at the podium.

Conductors Institute June 8–21, 2014
