When you study conducting at CIM, you receive an intensive experience with high-quality ensembles composed of CIM’s student musicians.
Designed with a very small enrollment of about four students, the conducting program gives you access to significant podium time to develop your training in this field. You’ll also have regular access to observe rehearsals with The Cleveland Orchestra and sectionals conducted by Orchestra principals.
Your curriculum combines conducting studies with music history and literature, theory and analysis, ensemble, and elective courses chosen in consultation with your major instructor.
CIM is suspending conducting applications until the search for a new director of the orchestral program is concluded. Applications will not be accepted for Fall 2020.
