Application - What it takes Conducting: 7-14 July
The What It Takes Conducting course will be held in Bloemfontein from 7-14 July in partnership with the Free State Symphony Orchestra and the National Youth Orchestra. This course includes attending National Youth Orchestra and Free State Symphony Orchestra rehearsals as auditors, and participating in workshops lead by professional conductors Alex Fokkens and Leon Bosch, as well as the opportunity for podium time in front of the National Youth Orchestra. It is also a chance for you to show what you are capable of and be considered as a potential guest conductor for the Free State Symphony Orchestra, as they would like to develop and give opportunities to young conductors.
Bloemfontein is the lead up to the Immersion Experience with the incredible Osmo Vänskä and the Minnesota Orchestra from 14-19 August in Pretoria. The Immersion Experience is free to attend, but you do need to get yourself there. In order to attend the Immersion Experience, you need to attend the WIT Conducting Course in Bloemfontein.
