Consulting lesson's day for major orchestra conducting

The department of conducting and opera coaching offers, for those who are applying for the audition for major orchestral conducting, a consulting lesson's day, held by Prof. Nicolás Pasquet, Prof. Ekhart Wycik and possibly other department's teachers. Please notice that the consulting lesson's day is held only for those applicants who are invited to the next following auditions and who have applied for the bachelor or master program (not for Konzertexamen).

The participation fee is 100,00 Euro, which has to be paid in advance. After registration, you receive the necessary information for payment, if you can be admitted to the consulting lessons. Participation does not constitute any claims.

Unfortunately, due to the current pandemic situation, the consulting lessons for March, 26th and 27th have to be cancelled. It is not yet possible to estimate whether a make-up date can be offered before the auditions in May.
