Conductor Development Program
Since 1997, Symphony Australia has played an important role in nourishing the talented pool of young conductors in Australia and has supported graduates to build substantial careers both here and overseas.
Graduates of the program include Benjamin Northey, Nicholas Carter, Luke Dollman and Nicholas Milton. Graduates of the program regularly conduct the Australian symphony orchestras.
In 2016 Symphony Australia will continue to manage the Conductor Development program for already-auditioned participants. The program will begin with a residential Summer School led by Johannes Fritzsch and hosted by the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra. Other training modules will be offered through the year. Enrolments are closed for this opportunity.
The Beat Starts Here, the conducting course for teachers and community conductors, takes place for the final time in Sydney from 9 – 13 April 2016. Symphony Services International is delighted to welcome back Luke Dollman as Course Director.
From 2017 Symphony Australia will not offer conductor development activities.
