2017 Undergraduate Conducting Master Class at TMEA
Friday, April 7

The leadership of the Tennessee ACDA invites you to participate in an undergraduate conducting master class at this year’s TMEA Conference in Nashville with sought-after conductor, educator, and clinician Dr. Lesley Mann of Belmont University. This master class will give undergraduate conductors the opportunity to work with a demonstration choir under the guidance of an experienced teacher/conductor. Furthermore, participants will be able to receive instruction and advice on your rehearsing and conducting technique.

Tennessee ACDA is grateful for the participation of the Ladies of Lee from Lee University, under the direction of Dr. Jonathan Rodgers, who will serve as the demonstration choir for the master class.

Two undergraduate conductors will be chosen by officers within the Tennessee ACDA Leadership. This master class is included on the TMEA conference schedule, and will surely be a wonderful event.

Monday, March 27 – applications due by 5:00pm.

Friday, March 31 – invitation extended to participants/participant acceptance. Master class repertoire sent to participants after receiving a confirmation of participation.
