RNCM Conducting Weekend, May 6-8 2015.

RNCM Conducting Weekend, May 6-8 2015.

The RNCM is pleased to invite applications for three days of dynamic master classes with internationally acclaimed conductors and RNCM Conducting Faculty members Mark Heron and Clark Rundell and featuring an exciting new partnership with Manchester Camerata.
Now in its 10th year, this weekend course reflects the core belief that underpins all of the College’s world-class conducting programmes: conductors learn by conducting other musicians. All participants can expect to conduct a combination of rehearsal pianists, chamber ensembles and orchestras on at least five occasions over the three days.

Orchestras and ensembles for the first two days will be students from the RNCM and the University of Manchester. On the final day, 50% of the orchestra will be members of Manchester Camerata, one of the UK’s leading professional chamber orchestras, sitting side-byside with selected RNCM students. The Camerata principal players will take an active role in those sessions, providing feedback to participants alongside the course faculty.

The course is open to both active conductors and observers

Brahms – Symphony No 2
Beethoven – Symphony No 4
Stravinsky – Soldier’s Tale
