Open to Ages 14 – Adult
This interactive workshop is for music educators, intermediate to advanced musicians, or adult students and Levine Honors Program students, who wish to be introduced to, review and hone, or study the art of conducting skills in an informal, fun, and relaxed environment. Instrumental and/or vocal participation required for Participants. Observers welcomed along with RSVP.
Participants must have a general understanding of music and your instrument, and be comfortable with basic note-reading and rhythm comprehension. Understanding of some music theory is helpful. Baton recommended, but optional. If you have previously attended the spring conducting one-day workshop, you will still have much to gain from attending this in-person experience!
Workshop will feature conducting warm-ups and exercises, and a chance to conduct the live ensemble, “Levine Conducting Workshop Ensemble!” A brief discussion and question time is available following the session.
Conducting Participant spots will be limited due to time. ALL participants are welcomed to join us in the conducting warm-up parts.
Conducting Participant: Conduct the ensemble and receive feedback in real-time, and while not conducting, play or sing in the ensemble. Please contact the instructor indicating your instrument.
Performing Participant: Do not conduct the ensemble, but observe while playing the music under the different student conductors. Please contact the instructor indicating your instrument.
Observer: Does not conduct the ensemble, and does not play the music but only observes.
More information will be sent out to registrants in advance of the event.
Any current Covid-19 protocols will be relayed to musicians prior to the event. Winds and brass players may need to be prepared with bell covers and masks. Please review our Return to Campus Guide.
