Summer Conducting Institute

July 11-16 / Saturday–Thursday

Neil Varon, director

The Summer Conducting Institute (SCI) capitalizes on the relationship between the Eastman School of Music and the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, providing talented apprentice conductors with advanced conducting skill the opportunity to conduct and rehearse a highly skilled professional orchestra. The main focus of the course concentrates on the relationship between the conductor and the orchestra, and the achievement of artistic intentions. Repertory for each conductor’s appearance with the RPO will be chosen in consultation with Neil Varon, SCI Music Director. Each conductor will have the opportunity to conduct the RPO and will receive a DVD recording of both the rehearsal and the run through.

Limited to 10 conductors.

Professional Development Hours: 48

Tuition:
$2,850 / 2 credits

Application: Conductors will be selected based on a video recorded audition. Recordings (DVD preferred) must be submitted with a completed registration form by March 15, 2015. No application fee.

“Prof. Varon was most helpful and taught us each to our specific needs.” – 2014 participants
