We are thrilled to have Dr. Jerry Blackstone leading our undergraduate and graduate level conducting master-classes at the ACDA Eastern Division Conference in March 2018. This is an outstanding opportunity for university students to work with Grammy award-winning conductor and master teacher, Dr. Blackstone. He will also be featured in an interest session about teaching conducting as he concludes his tenure at the University of Michigan next spring.
Two to three undergraduate and two graduate students will be selected to participate. Selected students will each receive a $500 scholarship to offset their conference-related expenses. Undergraduate & Graduate Conductors will prepare two pieces and meet for private instruction with Dr. Blackstone the day before the masterclass. The conductors will work with a collegiate level chorus during the masterclass. These masterclasses will engage graduate and undergraduate conductors who are enrolled full-time in a degree program. Applicants are not required to be enrolled in a conducting class at the time of application, only in a college/university music program.
