Fort Wayne Philharmonic is delighted to announce the first Fort Wayne Philharmonic International Conductors’ and Concertmasters’ Workshop in association with Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne and supported by the 80/20 Foundation. Following the principles of the legendary teacher Ilya Musin, Philharmonic Music Director Andrew Constantine and Professor Ennio Nicotra from Milano-Bicocca University and one of the world’s great concertmasters, Jonathan Carney, from the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra will lead young aspiring conductors and concertmasters in an intense series of workshops, discussions and a closing public concert with the Fort Wayne Philharmonic.

The workshops will take place between March 10th and 13th, 2015 and will include extensive sessions with orchestra, two pianos and individual lessons. For conductors, the focus will be on the techniques of the most celebrated conducting teacher of the twentieth century, Ilya Musin. For concertmaster classes, sessions will include amongst others; The Art of Bowing, Audition and Concerto Preparation. Bonding these workshops will be analysis of the crucial but oft neglected aspects of the conductor/concertmaster relationship and the “inner game surrounding the podium”!

Places are limited in number and participation is open to three types of student; suitably qualified violinists aspiring to gain greater insight and experience of the concertmaster role, experienced conductors aspiring to develop their professional credentials and technique and also, less experienced conductors looking to develop their baton skills. All sessions will be open to every attendee but time with orchestra will be allocated to the more experienced conductors.

Fees will be modest and the administration will make every effort to assist with affordable accommodation.
