The brainchild of Music Director Jerome Hoberman, the Assistant Conductorship is a relatively new initiative that was established in 2017. The apprenticeship runs yearly from August/September to June. It is a unique opportunity for young conductors that combines training, performance, and career development, under the guidance of the Music Director.
Assistant Conductors will have the opportunity to work with a seasoned large choral ensemble, study and conduct a wide range of repertoire, including new commissioned pieces, and gain podium experience. There will also be opportunities to conduct different types of performances, including season concerts, workshops, and other more casual events.
Past beneficiaries have gone on to pursue further studies abroad at very selective conducting programmes.
