Ingenium Conducting Week begins this summer
We are thrilled to announce that this summer we will be launching our Conducting Week, an intensive residential course for ambitious young conductors.
Our young conductors will spend an intensive week focussing on their development as ensemble directors.
The course will run alongside the first week of the Ingenium Academy's three-week residential course at Winchester College this summer, from 17th to 24th July.
About the course
The course will cover every essential aspect of rehearsal and performance including score reading and preparation, baton technique, rehearsal technique, shaping and phrasing, musical analysis and music history.
Conductors will have the opportunity to spend time with the Ingenium Orchestra and Choir, as well as working with smaller chamber ensembles. They will also benefit from in-depth Q&A sessions with professional orchestral musicians to gain an understanding of best practices and how to communicate musical ideas effectively, and participate in workshops with students from our instrumental, vocal and piano courses, broadening their musical underdstanding and experience.
Course leader - Tim Redmond
We are delighted that our Conducting Week will be led by Tim Redmond this year. Tim is a regular guest conductor with top orchestras across Europe and has given concerts in the UK with the Philharmonia, Royal Northern Sinfonia and London Philharmonic Orchestra, with the BBC Concert, Philharmonic and Symphony Orchestras, with the Hallé, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and Ulster Orchestras, and many more.
