Summer 2018 Programs » Conductors Workshop
The 8th Annual
at Queens College
July 9 - 15, 2018
A short ride away from New York City, the Queens College Conductors Workshop (QCCW) is a training ground for emerging and established conductors alike. Conductors have 150 minutes of podium time, working regularly with the QCCW Festival Orchestra, our professional-level, highly responsive orchestra. Conducting Fellows will receive critiques, coaching, and hands-on lessons from the faculty and participate in lectures, score study sessions and a trip to the New York Philharmonic Archives, where marked scores by former NYPhil music directors are placed on view.
New works will be performed each session with the composers present, helping to give insight into what composers expect to see as their scores come to life. This year, fellows will continue to work with composer Bruce Saylor on his Violin Concerto, a project three workshops in the making! Director Tong Chen continues the vision of the late Maurice Peress, the founder of the QCCW in 2010. She is joined by other world-class faculty members, Markand Thakar and David Briskin.
The workshop takes place in the beautiful LeFrak Concert Hall, one of the best acoustic spaces in the New York Area.
