Conductors' Symposium

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.

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.
