About the Program
The choral, orchestral, and wind conducting options in the Conducting program of the University of Oregon are designed for experienced teacher-conductors to hone their craft.
The choral conducting program emphasizes podium time, supported by the study of conducting, rehearsal technique, choral literature, score study, vocal pedagogy, and diction, along with music history and performance practice.
The orchestral conducting program emphasizes real-world conducting experience with a variety of orchestras. Students conduct both the Campus Orchestra and the University of Oregon Symphony Orchestra weekly. Select students have the opportunity to conduct the Eugene Symphony in rehearsal, as well as the Oregon Mozart Players and Eugene Opera in performance. Students will also have one-on-one access to all their conductors for questions and networking. Study topics include gesture and technique, score study, interpretation, and repertoire.
The wind conducting program features the study of wind literature, conducting, rehearsal technique, program operations, score study, and time on the podium.
In all three programs, a small cohort of graduate students work together in an engaging, challenging, and supportive environment. Over the past 10 years, all our graduates have either found music-related employment or progressed to prominent doctoral programs.
