At International Conducting Masterclasses, we strive to provide all of the resources necessary for conductors of both today and tomorrow to become masters of orchestral direction behind the podium.
Our masterclasses are led by our knowledgeable and highly decorated tutors, of whom have decades of experience, across countries and continents, leading some of the most prolific orchestras in modern history. We also work closely with numerous professional orchestras and in our meticulously built and acoustically beautiful theaters.
Through our workshops you will develop the essential skills and resources for a career in conducting.
Send in your application today and reserve your spot behind the podium, in front of the orchestra, and beneath the open curtains.
