The Conductors Retreat at Medomak invites you to participate in a unique new online program designed especially for these times.  Join together with us in creating a new community of conductors to learn from one another, our distinguished faculty members, and a few of the many accomplished alumni of the Conductors Retreat at Medomak. If you conduct or are becoming a conductor, this is an opportunity not to be missed.  Everyone is welcome! 

Zero Tuition – Free for Everyone!

The Conductors Retreat at Medomak has always been committed to advancing conducting, conductors, and the communities they serve.  To continue fulfilling our mission and to meet our participants’ needs at this particular moment, we are offering this year’s online edition of the Retreat without any fee.  It is free of charge to all participants. Those who join us for the first three days will be welcome to attend any or all of the other sessions.

Please Join Us!

Though we can only be at Medomak in spirit, we will come together as a community of passionate and committed musicians from around the world. Energize the continued development of your artistic sensibilities, musical understanding, technical skills, and leadership capacity. Register today!
