National Conductors' Symposium - application deadline Nov 6

Published on October 9, 2015

Presenting a week of conducting sessions and technique seminars, Master Conductor Jon Washburn will provide invaluable instruction for selected choral conductors from around the world. The symposium will focus on providing conductors with as much podium time as possible and will culminate with each participant sharing in the conducting of a Vancouver Chamber Choir concert.

Observers are also welcome and are encouraged to participate in all aspects of the symposium, including some conducting sessions if they wish.

Applications must be received by November 6, 2015. For more information about the Vancouver Chamber Choir or the National Conductors' Symposium just visit our website:

We look forward to hearing from you!

From past participants:

"The most profound musical experience I have had yet in my career."

"It's not just about conducting. From discussions about organizational matters including boards, marketing and fundraising to artistic and practical elements of conducting, NCS is an all-encompassing look at leading an arts organization."

"I don't know any other workshop that provides this much podium time and gives a young emerging artist the opportunity to work with so many professional singers."
