Northeast Wind Conducting Symposium

MUED 73700-01

Location: Whalen Center for Music, room 3102
Monday, June 25 to Friday, June 29, 2018.

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.

Guest Clinician: Tom Lee, Director of Bands Emeritus, UCLA
