Choral Conducting Workshop

The 2014 Harold Rosenbaum Choral Conducting Institute Workshop will be held at the State University of New York at Buffalo, USA, from Sunday 17 August to Friday 22 August 2014. This six-day workshop is open to choral conductors from around the world who wish to enhance their careers, expand their contacts and have an intensive experience with one of the world's leading choral conductors. The HRCCI includes rehearsal and performance conducting opportunities, one-on-one instruction and individual guidance.

The Institute is limiting enrollment to twelve conductors so each participant will receive close attention and hands-on guidance. Each attendee will receive a private lesson, plus opportunities to rehearse the choir comprised of the participants and others, with constructive feedback by Rosenbaum. The registration deadline is 15 February 2014. For complete details, including workshop brochure and application form, please visit the link below.
