Muzik Fermata are holding a three day course on conducting. There are options to attend as active participants or observers. The first day is a full study day online using Zoom followed by two days of active conducting with the ensemble held at St Hilda’s College, Oxford. On day one, attendees will focus on score preparation, including a discussion about orchestral problems of the piece, potential solutions, individual interpretations, aspects of technical difficulties and developing a productive rehearsal technique appropriated to the repertoire. This will be followed by a practical weekend where active participants will work with a professional chamber ensemble, consisting of young and experienced orchestral players and a pianist.

All active participants will conduct the ensemble for 45 min per day, two sessions a day, before and after lunch break. Each day will conclude with short debriefing and discussion. Members of the ensemble will also be invited to join.

Fees are:

  • Active participant: £750
