Symphony summer school
Expect the sounds of sweet music over the coming summer months, with a special summer school for aspiring Tasmanian conductors. For the second year, the Australian Conducting Academy, in conjunction with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra (TSO), will be giving the next generation of conductors the opportunity to hone their talents with a professional orchestra. The course is being led by TSO principal guest conductor, Johannes Fritzsch. TSO Managing Director, Nicholas Heyward told The Mercury: “For the second year running we are delighted to offer a talented group of aspiring conductors a unique opportunity to work with a professional orchestra which is very involved and supportive of the process, and hone their skills with Johannes, a master educator and mentor.” The symphony summer school will be held in Hobart from late January next year.
