Public Observation of SCO Conducting Workshop

Description

Singapore Chinese Orchestra will be having its fourth run of Conducting Workshop, held biennially. This workshop is led by SCO Music Director, Tsung Yeh.


Through the conducting workshop, we wish to further develop the participant’s conducting skills and appreciation of Nanyang style music. It will be a rare opportunity to work with the only professional Chinese orchestra in Singapore.


Past workshops had produced numerous conducting talents such as Ku Pao Wen, who was appointed Assistant Conductor of SCO for 2007. Currently based in Taiwan Kaohsiung, he was appointed the Guest Conductor Chair for SCO Concert Season 2012/13. In the second run, Moses Gay and Wong Kah Chun were both appointed Conducting Assistant in 2010; Moses is currently the Assistant Conductor of SCO while Kah Chun remains as an active Guest Conductor in the region and in Europe. Leonard Tan who attended the workshop, is currently the Principal Conductor of Singapore National Youth Orchestra and the Music Director of The Philharmonic Winds. In 2015, we accepted a total of 8 active participants from Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong.


Contents of the workshop:

  1. Music director will conduct the workshop and provide coaching on baton techniques, scores analysis to participants personally. There will be podium time for every active participant with 2 pianists and SCO.
  2. Various composers will share about composition analysis of their pieces.
  3. Active participants will present a repertoire on the last day of the workshop. Each participant will be given a certificate of accomplishment.
