Application Deadline: Women Conductors Phase 1 Workshop

Fri 06 Jul 2018 17.00

Led by acclaimed conductor Alice Farnham, these 2-day workshops are aimed at encouraging female music students age 16 and over, who want to become professional musicians / music teachers, to pick up the baton and take to the conductor's podium, mostly for the first time.

Participants will get the chance to work with pianists, instrumental ensembles, and a stagecraft and body language coach over both days, and will receive individual guidance and feedback from the workshop leaders. They will also receive recorded footage of their conducting to take away following the workshop.

The Phase 1 workshops are tailored to those who have never considered conducting and want to give it a try, as well as those with some conducting experience who would like to reaffirm these skills.
