The 2014 Conductors Symposium - including both instrumental and choral tracks - will be held on Friday, February 7 and Saturday, February 8, with Featured Clinicians, Prof. Kevin Sedatole, Director of Bands at Michigan State University, and Dr. Kevin Fenton, Professor of Choral Conducting and Ensembles at The Florida State University.
UCM's annual Conductors Symposium brings together musicians from around the country for two days of camaraderie and musical growth. Symposium participants have included college and school directors, graduate students and undergraduates from New York to North and South Carolina, to Texas, Wyoming, Maryland, Ohio, Kansas, Iowa, Illinois, and Missouri - interested in refining their conducting skills, improving their score study and rehearsal techniques, and expanding their knowledge of literature.
Applications are accepted on a first-come basis. Registrants have two options:
Conductor Status (limited number of conductors accepted): Opportunity to conduct the UCM Wind Ensemble and/or Symphonic Band in two (2) twenty-minute sessions (once each day), receiving comments and instruction from our featured clinicians. Video of the conducting sessions is provided.
Participant Status (unlimited): Participants are actively involved in all sessions, discussions, and presentations, and observe all conducting sessions.
