39th Annual MSBOA Conducting Symposium
  • by Mark Stice 
Room: Amway - Ambassador, Time Slot: 09:00 AM Thu 01/19/17

View Abstract

Conducting Symposiums have been offered to Michigan School Band and Orchestra Association (MSBOA) members since 1975. For the 10th year, the Symposium will be held as a pre-conference event. Participants are videotaped as they conduct traditional band and orchestral repertoire followed by live comments from respected and experienced conductors, including Dr. Kevin Sedatole from Michigan State University. Our featured rehearsal ensembles this year are the Michigan State University Wind Symphony and the MSBOA/MASTA Teacher Orchestra. Chosen participants gain valuable insight into the art of conducting. New teachers and seasoned professionals alike can benefit from this unique, hands-on program. Up to 20 wind and 15 string conductors will have time in front of an ensemble. Conductors will be selected based upon the time available, total number of requests submitted, and the order of receipt of applications. Those selected to conduct will be notified in advance and will be asked to select one movement from a conducting medium (winds or strings) to be announced at a later time. Spots to conduct do fill up quickly. Selections to conduct have yet to be determined. Teachers may elect to apply to conduct or merely observe; college students may only observe. Questions can be directed to Mark Stice, MSBOA Conducting Symposium Chair, at mark.stice@okemosk12.net. SCE-Clock Hours are available for both participants and observers.
