BCO Summer Conducting Seminar 
with Markand Thakar

June 16-25, 2014
Baltimore, Maryland
Under the supervision of renowned pedagogue Markand Thakar, up to 10 fellows will conduct the internationally acclaimed Baltimore Chamber Orchestra in orchestral works by Tchaikovsky, Schubert and Beethoven, and – with members of BCO – smaller works by Stravinsky, Haydn, Beethoven, Mozart, and Schubert.
“It was more than a musical approach to the conductor’s duty, more than a theoretical explanation of why do we exist as conductors, for me it was a philosophical moment to think on music as a lifestyle. Each day there was a new goal to achieve, and new issues to resolve, from our mind and from our bodies, everything together in order to ‘be the music’ and let the music be itself. It was absolutely an inspiring experience.”
