North Texas Conductors Collegium/Competition
Mon, Jun 12, 2017, 8:00 AM – Sun, Jun 25, 2017, 10:00 PM CDT
The North Texas Conductors Collegium/Competition will take place in conjunction with the WMC International Conductors Course/Competition. Applicants from around the world will be chosen from a series of semi-final events to compete at the world event held in Kerkrade, Netherlands from July 12-19, 2017. The North Texas Conductors Collegium/Competition is the only semi-final site for North America.
Over the twelve-day course, up to forty conductors will appear with the North Texas Wind Symphony in a series of concerts. The Collegium/Competition is divided into four 3-day rounds and a final 2-day competition round. The competition round is by invitation only, but other Collegium participants are free to attend. Each conducting round concludes with an evening concert featuring the 10 conductors participating in that round. Conductor and Non-Conductor Participants may choose to go to as few or as many rounds as they wish for the same cost. A minimum of two consecutive rounds are required in order to conduct - it is important to observe a round before conducting on a round. Competitor-Participants MUST attend all 12 days of the Collegium in order to qualify for the WMC Competition.
