Conducting Fellows


Members of the Luke McEndarfer Conducting Fellows are selected annually each Spring for participation the following year. Students in this group must have demonstrated unique skill and promise as part of the Senior Division’s “Leader of the Band” musicianship course that culminates in a year-end masterclass evaluated by our Artistic Team. As part of this program, our young conductors work weekly with the Artistic Director on conducting technique, rehearsal protocol and the psychology of leading a large group of musicians. In addition, they gain the exclusive privilege of real-life conducting experience by leading their peers in rehearsal and performance at major NCC events.
