Master Class in Conducting
June 23 – July 13, 2014
For over 40 years, conductors have come to the Oregon Bach Festival to further their skills through the Master Class in Conducting. Under Matthew Halls, the OBF’s new Artistic Director, the class expands its curriculum with new opportunities to learn, explore, and conduct.
Conducting or Auditing Participants
Those who audition and are selected as conducting participants will receive hands-on coaching and will lead the Festival orchestra, choruses, and soloists in rehearsal and performance. Auditing participants attend all sessions, participate fully in discussions and seminars, and conduct in a special session at the end of the class.
Need-based financial aid is available to conductors chosen for the class. Do not let the cost of the program keep you from auditioning, as you may qualify for scholarship funding.
All participants live and work alongside the resident chorus, orchestra, and artistic staff, creating further opportunities for collaboration, friendships, and artistic growth.
All participants attend rehearsals and sessions led by Festival faculty and staff, get a close-up view of rehearsals and performances of major Festival concerts, and attend special sessions such as the Hinkle Distinguished Lectures.
