Conductor's Repertoire

Mendelssohn ELIJAH, Op. 70

In English


Lessons with string quintet, professional soloists, and collaborative pianists
Rehearsals and concerts with the BBS
Chamber Orchestra
Joint master classes with singers, conductors, a string quintet, and collaborative pianist

Mendelssohn's ELIJAH and Mozart's C MINOR MASS are rich in conducting pedagogical potential.  Most especially, with limited rehearsal time, the recitatives and arias pose unique problems for everyone involved....including the orchestra.  The lessons will focus on effective collaboration and communication between conductors and soloists, soloists and conductors, and the orchestra itself (most especially with limited rehearsal time).  In addition, conductors will study arias (singers' repertoire page) and opera scenes for  performances during the Symposium.
