RNCM Conducting Masterclasses 2016/17

RNCM Conducting Masterclasses 2016/17
The RNCM is pleased to invite applications for its 2016-17 programme of external conducting master classes.

There will be a one day course on 25 November 2016, a two day course from 20 – 21 February 2017, and a three day course from 12 – 14 May 2017.


These courses reflect the core belief that underpins all of the College’s world-class conducting programmes: conductors learn best by conducting other musicians. All participants will conduct at least twice on each day, working with professional pianists, RNCM student ensembles, and for the May course a partnership with Manchester Camerata – the city’s professional chamber orchestra.


Typical participants will be current, recent, or prospective students of a full-time conducting course, and many travel from Europe or further afield to attend. Applications are currently open for the November and February courses. You can apply for either or both of these events using this application pack.




Application for the May weekend will be a separate process, details will be announced in Autumn 2016.


The RNCM is currently at the forefront of conducting training internationally. Current students and recent graduates of our Junior Fellowship and Masters programmes currently hold, or have recently completed, assistant conductor positions with the Berliner Philharmoniker, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, English National Opera, Hallé, London Symphony Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, and the Minnesota Orchestra.


We also run a course for conductors working in music education, information about that is available here:
