The artist diploma in conducting is a highly selective program for students determined to pursue a professional career in conducting.
Working closely with a faculty mentor, you'll supplement your existing qualifications with a selection of graduate-level music courses and performance experience with Lamont ensembles.
Conductors in the Artist Diploma program get hands-on experience leading the Lamont Symphony Orchestra, Wind Ensemble or choral ensembles.
About the Program
In addition to submitting the graduate application, applicants to the artist diploma program must have a valid high school diploma and complete an audition.
The audition requirements vary among the areas of orchestral, choral, and wind conducting. For detailed audition requirements, please visit the Conducting studio page.
The 27-credit artist diploma offers specializations in choral, orchestra or wind conducting completed over a two year period.
Scholars in the program will make four concert appearances with an appropriate major ensemble and will perform one full-length conducting recital.
