Academy is a great opportunity for young conductors to develop their
skills in a supporting atmosphere and for more experienced conductors
to have a chance to go over musical ideas and technical difficulties.
Within the five day course there will be all together five conducting
sessions (three with Arkady Leytush and two with Paavo Järvi). The
teachers will choose the best students to conduct at the final
concert on the 11th of March. General rehearsal and
concert will be of course supervised by both of the teachers.
Participants from the Winter Academy are often chosen for the Summer Academy as well to follow the learning progress over a longer time.
