Thank you KHS for welcoming us!]

2017 UHCW, June 5–9

Conducting Labs

Participants will conduct and rehearse the UH Chamber Winds/Wind Ensemble or the UHCW Lab Choir, guided and assisted by our conducting faculty. Each participant will receive extensive podium time and specific feedback tailored to their specific needs. Movement, conducting technique, rehearsal strategies, and score study will all be addressed. Choral participants will have access to each day’s video later that same day.

Discussion Sessions

Daily discussion sessions on Baton Technique, Score Study, Rehearsal Techniques, Rehearsal Planning, and more, in informal meetings with our conducting faculty.
