Tanglewood Conducting Fellowship 2015

“Tanglewood gave me a crucial and invaluable education. Surrounded and stimulated at every turn by mentors, musicians, fellow students and great artists, I couldn’t help but grow. I will be forever thankful for all that it has brought me.”– Ludovic Morlot, Music Director, Seattle Symphony Orchestra (TMC ’01)

Stefan Asbury, Conducting Program Coordinator

The TMC offers young conductors the opportunity to work with internationally recognized maestros, podium time in front of an extraordinarily talented group of colleagues, and the chance to study the technique of many distinguished artists as they work with the BSO in both rehearsal and performance. The TMC Conducting Program counts among its alumni many of the great conductors of our time, including Claudio Abbado, Leonard Bernstein, Seiji Ozawa, Michael Tilson Thomas, Christoph von Dohnanyi, and David Zinman.

Conducting Fellows gain practical experience in leading the TMC Orchestra and conducting smaller ensembles of TMC musicians in both standard repertoire and new music during the world-renowned Festival of Contemporary Music. Fellows participate in conducting classes given by TMC resident and guest faculty, including master-classes with chamber orchestra, and in discussions with visiting artists and BSO guest conductors; they also observe rehearsals of the BSO and the TMCO throughout the season.

Conducting Fellows will be chosen on the basis of submitted online application with videos, letters of recommendation, and possible in-person or phone interviews
