EMU Conductors Symposium


Friday September 28, 2018


The EMU Conductors Symposium is intended to help you and your students better prepare to lead this academic year! Join us for a fantastic day of connection and discussion for you and your student leadership team.

Track 1 Teacher Refresh

Current Middle & High School Teachers will benefit from this from this event which will focus on improving gesture, score study and rehearsal techniques lead by Dr. Brandon Johnson.

Track 2 High School Students

Here at Eastern Michigan University, we believe that the sooner you begin your conducting study, the better. High School section leaders, student conductors and those students who are considering a music major are a perfect fit to join us for the day.

Join us on September 28 to spend the day with the Eastern Michigan University choral faculty and students learning and talking about conducting.
