The Boyer College of Music and Dance at Temple University is proud to announce the summer Wind Conducting and Teaching Workshop for conductors and educators of all levels. Sessions will explore physical gesture and its relationship to sound, conducting and rehearsal technique, approaches to score study and interpretation, and repertoire and programming ideas. Participants will have daily opportunities to conduct the Workshop Band (in which each participant will play their instrument), participate in movement sessions, attend topical discussions led by Drs. Cornett, Dorsey and Brunner, and socialize and network with each other in the evenings at varied establishments in downtown Philadelphia. New in 2024: Act 48 credit will be available.
