Following the success of our recent virtual courses led by our Artistic Director, Jonathan Mann on the late Dvorak Symphonies our virtual programme will now turn its focus to the final three symphonies composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
During each virtual course participants will spend time discussing the score in detail, listening critically from the conductor’s perspective to a selection of recordings and working through the medium of conducting in silence which has proven to be an extremely useful and effective method of working.
Participants who sign up for all three courses are invited to a special bonus session titled ‘Do I need management?’ led by Bettine Mehne, Artist Manager and Co-Author of Be Your Own Manager: A Career Handbook for Classical Musicians.
Testimonials from previous CIAC Virtual Courses: “This course was immensely valuable and helpful. Jonathan Mann knew exactly how to help me improve, and it was a pleasure to learn in such a supportive environment. The silent conducting was particularly useful.” “Imagine a seminar where intellectual imagination, collaboration, and curiosity, are allowed to run rampant within a musical setting. That is what CIAC represents for me: a space, online and in-person, that envision conducting as a purely musical pursuit or vocation, untethered to the strings of expectations. Jonathan Mann has created a flexible schedule that maximises learning and experience within an orchestral setting. Most importantly, CIAC is not formulaic to chase a brand of conducting. Instead, Mann has curated a learning experience tailored to each participant.”
