 Instrumental ensemble leadership workshop with Martyn Brabbins

Observer places are available for this workshop with Martyn Brabbins, Music Director of English National Opera, which will help musical directors to develop their ensemble leadership skills and conducting techniques. Watch and learn first hand from Martyn as he guides five conductors through rehearsal with a leisure-time orchestra for 30 minutes each.

The workshop is open to anyone who has an interest in developing conducting technique. Gain insight into the music being rehearsed, pick up tips on conducting and rehearsal technique, find out how to inspire and influence an ensemble, learn how to get an ensemble to follow your lead, improve your confidence as a conductor and develop your individual conducting style.

Martyn Brabbins is Music Director of the English National Opera. An inspirational force in British music, Brabbins has had a busy opera career since his early days at the Kirov and more recently at La Scala and the Bayerische Staatsoper. He is a popular figure at the BBC Proms and with most of the leading British orchestras, and regularly visits top international orchestras such as the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Deutsche Symphonie-Orchester Berlin and Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony. He is currently Visiting Professor at the Royal College of Music and Artistic Advisor to the Huddersfield Choral Society, and has for many years supported professional, student and amateur music-making at the highest level in the UK.
