As a Conducting Participant you will conduct and collaborate with the Laurier Wind Orchestra and Chamber ensembles receiving real-time feedback and guidance from clinicians. You will observe and participate in presentations and live-conducting sessions. All Conducting Participants are expected to purchase scores. In this role, your focus will be developing gestural vocabulary, shared communication between the conductor and ensemble, and honing ensemble leadership. You will enjoy at least 20 minutes of individualized podium time, and a post-private lesson with a clinician. A conducting participant will be an enriching opportunity for current music educators, undergraduate and graduate music students.
As a Symposium Attendee you will gain insight as an educator, a musician, and a conductor. In this role, you will not have an opportunity to conduct the CSI Laurier ensembles, but you will observe presentations and conducting sessions, and engage in discussions. You will gain information to refine and develop your conducting and rehearsing skills; note taking, active participation, and self-reflection is highly encouraged. Purchasing scores of the selected repertoire is a great way to engage in the music-making and learning process. This is a wonderful opportunity for first-time conducting symposium attendees and individuals seeking to develop their skills (i.e., music educators, undergraduate music students, students looking into graduate conducting programs).
