Northeast Wind Conducting Symposium
Location: Whalen Center for Music, room 3102
The Ithaca Wind Symposium will allow conductors to study conducting technique, gesture, and expression in several different settings including open discussion, lecture, and a conducting workshop. Each of the five days will include the opportunity to conduct a live ensemble on a variety of well-known wind works, during which time conducting technique will be addressed. There will be discussion concerning rehearsal technique, repertoire at several different levels, perhaps a reading session, lectures on current trends including implementation of national standards, and plenty of opportunity for meaningful discussion about all aspects of being a wind conductor/teacher.
