This summer we offer both afternoon and evening sessions to try and accommodate those who work full-time! Become the conductor you have always wanted to be – improve your rehearsal techniques and conducting skills in a friendly and nurturing class setting. Daily sessions will cover such topics as tips for selecting choral literature, score study and preparation, dynamic phrasing, acquiring and using meaningful conducting gestures, effective rehearsal techniques, and beautiful singing. Students will have opportunities to conduct the class as a lab chorus and to observe and participate in a rehearsal of the Salt Lake Vocal Artists. Participants receive a packet of materials for each session. Conductors of any level are welcome—from beginning to advanced—and are encouraged to attend all sessions but may pick and choose the dates and times according to your availability.
