Conducting and Teaching Workshop

Summer 2022 (dates TBD)

The Conducting and Teaching Workshop will provide an enriching opportunity to blend the artistic and technical growth of the conductor, with a focus on conducting technique, rehearsal pedagogy, administrative, and teaching skills. Each conducting participant will conduct daily with ample time on the podium. The selected repertoire list represents some of the finest works for chamber wind ensemble and will be performed by our graduate performance students. In addition to conducting the OU Summer Chamber Winds, participants will receive feedback and coaching on their conducting, attend master-classes, clinic sessions, and panel discussions.
