During the first edition of the F. Corti International Choir Directors Competition, we would like to offer the possibility to participate to the event from a different point of view and with the valuable guidance of an experienced teacher-conductor.
This educational programme, already in use in important national and international events, is intended for choir conductors and students of choral conducting in a training and in-depth study path that allows them to analyse a plurality of situations, experiences, repertoires, in a context of high international profile.
It will be possible to follow all the competition rounds (preliminary round, semi-final and final) with reserved access and a guaranteed seat inside the G. Verdi Conservatory of Turin, the competition venue.
There will also be specific moments of discussions and analysis, outside the competition hours, led by the Study Tour leader, Matteo Valbusa (Italy). An opportunity, therefore, not only to listen but also to deepen and share aimed at personal and professional growth.
The programme will start at 9.30 a.m. on Friday 25th June and will end on Sunday 27th June with the prize-giving ceremony at 7 p.m. Detailed times will be communicated after the closing of registration, which is scheduled for 4th June 2021 (subject to availability).
The application fee is € 60 for direct and indirect ECA/EC members and € 80 for non-members and includes the complete scores in PDF, "sample" mode.
According to the order of registration a maximum of 20 participants will be admitted.
