National Conductors' Symposium Presents RENAISSANCE, ROMANTIC RUSTIC
This concert will be the final event of the 37th annual National Conductors' Symposium.
Jon Washburn and his five invited conductors from around the world will focus on three distinct musical styles - the Renaissance polyphony of Palestrina, Victoria, Lassus and Josquin; the Romantic partsong of Schubert, Schumann, Fauré and Elgar; and the Rustic art of folksong from Britain, France, Germany and North America.
The performance will be prefaced with Jon and the singers demonstrating a few of the many techniques that conductors use to shape and manipulate the elements of a piece into a personal interpretation of the music.Repertoire
