Study Choral Conducting at Princeton Univ., Aug. 9-12

The Catholic Sacred Music Project is excited to announce its 2nd Conducting Institute, to be held in August on the beautiful campus of Princeton University in Princeton, New Jersey. The Institute is a unique and exceptional training opportunity, offering emerging and established conductors a singular environment that balances instruction, study, prayer, and conviviality in an atmosphere of collegial support and encouragement.
Eight Conducting Fellows will receive premium podium experience at the helm of a 16-voice professional choir, along with hands-on instruction from master teachers Dr. James Jordan and Dr. Timothy McDonnell. The music list for the Institute will represent various genres of sacred music drawn from classic and contemporary choral repertories, Gregorian chant, and traditional hymnody. Each day’s workshop sessions will be punctuated by sung Mass and Compline, with service music conducted by Conducting Fellows and Conducting Auditors. The Institute will conclude with a public concert at the Princeton University Chapel on Saturday, August 12, at noon.
The CSMP welcomes all applications for fellows and auditors by July 1, 2023. Conducting Fellow applicants must submit a video audition. See the website of the CSMP to apply:
Repertoire will be confirmed and assigned to the conducting fellows and auditors based on experience and aptitude after registration closes.
