The ISO and Music For All are excited to announce a virtual four-day Conducting Symposium for students in high school and college. Curated and led by ISO Associate Conductor, Jacob Joyce, this seminar will cover the fundamentals of conducting, from score study techniques to navigating mixed meter. The Conducting Symposium runs on July 20, 21, 23, and 24, with up to four sessions per day with special guests Miguel Harth-Bedoya and Hugh Wolff. There will be no sessions on July 22 to allow for a break, however, Maestro Joyce will be available for “office hours” in case of questions or other needs. Registration is open and completely free to students who wish to join us.
In addition to the daily sessions, Maestro Joyce will also make time for individual and breakout sessions. Participants are not required to attend every session – We encourage you to select your path through the program based on your interests and strengths. Each session will last approximately 45-50 minutes, with short breaks in between sessions.
The schedule attached is an overview for the week. If you registered for the symposium after 7/20, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for the schedule with Zoom links.
All scores required can be found on IMSLP. Homework assignments for the week are as follows:
