Chair, Department of Orchestral Conducting
As a student in one of our orchestral conducting programs, you will become part of a very select group of young conductors chosen to study with some of the world’s top maestros.
You’ll spend your days surrounded by advanced master’s and doctoral students who share your passion for music and conducting—and your commitment to being the best.
You’ll be part of a program that emphasizes both symphonic and opera repertoire and offers the opportunity for instruction with the Conductor's Lab Orchestra three times a week.
And you’ll have the opportunity to conduct your own ad-hoc concerts, as well as serve as assistants to the faculty and visiting conductors within orchestral and operatic productions.
You’ll graduate ready to succeed on the world’s stage—anywhere that life takes you.
