January 24-26, 2015 conductor and pedagogue David Zinman will lead a three-day workshop for young conductors at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa. Four participants will be selected to study with Maestro Zinman in working sessions with a small ensemble and with the National Arts Centre Orchestra in repertoire by Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven and Dvorak. The workshop is a prelude to an expanded conductors program with Maestro Zinman during the Summer Music Institute in 2016.
The NAC welcomes applications from young conductors at the level of Assistant or Resident Conductor, and emerging conductors who have experience with regional orchestras. Full support is provided by the National Arts Centre. Auditors may also apply to attend the workshop at their own expense. The deadline for all applications is November 10.
