Graduate Choral Conducting Program at the University of Toronto

Graduate Choral Conducting Program at the University of Toronto
Applications are invited for the M.M. in choral conducting program at the University of Toronto for the academic year 2015 – 2016.   Materials may be submitted on line by December 1, 2014.   See for further information.   (Applications for the DMA degree will resume for the 2016- 2017 school year.  We have no openings for the upcoming year.)
Master’s degree students gain valuable ensemble experience and podium time with one of three choirs:  Women’s Chamber Choir, Men’s Chorus, or Women’s Chorus, and sing in the MacMillan Singers, a select SATB chamber choir.   Coursework includes individual lessons, a conducting seminar in choral repertory, and courses in vocal/choral pedagogy, orchestral conducting techniques, and musical analysis.   In addition, a variety of elective courses are offered.   Toronto has a rich choral scene and there are numerous opportunities for students to participate as section leads in local ensembles, as well as some conducting internships and independent positions.    The M.M. program is a two-year residency degree.
