Army Band Conductors Workshop

Geared toward students at the graduate conducting level or in the early stages of a conducting career, The United States Army Band “Pershing’s Own”, the premier music organization of the U.S. Army, will offer this unique workshop and provide its participants conducting opportunities with The U.S. Army Concert Band. This intensive 4-day program will include coaching with special guest clinician Dr. Mallory Thompson of Northwestern University, and COL Andrew J. Esch, The U.S. Army Band’s Leader and Commander.

Sessions will include pertinent profession- related topics of score study, baton and rehearsal techniques, an open rehearsal with Dr. Thompson, and stick time with The U.S. Army Orchestra and Army Chorus. Rehearsals will culminate in a public concert on Thursday, July 21.

Conductors will receive a complimentary recording of their sessions and the July 21 performance will be archived on YouTube. Repertoire will include standards written for symphonic band; the list will be provided upon workshop acceptance.

Five (5) active participants will be accepted; however, auditors are welcome to all sessions and will also have a brief conducting opportunity.
