Conducting Workshop

Leading from the Podium: The Art of Conducting and Rehearsing


Geared toward conductors of all levels, this intensive three-day symposium provides the opportunity to conduct professional musicians of the Chattanooga Symphony, as well as attend presentations on a wide range of topics regarding score study, rehearsal techniques, and podium presence. Each active participant will also receive feedback from clinicians Kayoko Dan (Music Director of the CSO), Michael Griffith (Visiting Director of Bands at University of Tennessee at Chattanooga), and Dr. Craig Davis (Director of Bands at University of Tennessee at Chattanooga). Up to fifteen active participants will be accepted to take the podium, and auditors are welcome. The workshop will also include optional social & networking activities!

Thank you to all of our 2020 workshop participants! Information and applications for the 2021 workshop will be available later this year.
