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.
