About the Wind Band Conducting Workshop Chamber Track
Conductors were selected to participate in the Chamber Track of the 2024 Wind Band Conducting Workshop. For consideration, interested conductors submitted a video sample and curriculum vitae in May. The process is competitive and university faculty select the conductors and assign them to a composition. In addition to participation in the morning sessions and afternoon workshop band sessions, the Chamber Track Conductors work intensively with the chamber ensemble and clinicians on the assigned composition throughout the week.
The concert is free and open to the public. Livestream available, [select Ultan Recital Hall].
