Specialist postgraduate programmes in conducting at RWCMD range
from orchestral conducting to choral direction and brass band
Orchestral conductors benefit from in-house rehearsal and
performance opportunities with various College ensembles including
the RWCMD Symphony Orchestra under the guidance of the College’s
Conductor in Residence, David Jones.
The Postgraduate Brass Band Conducting programmes are led by Dr
Robert Childs, one of the most recognised and accomplished figures
in the field and former director of the Cory Band, which is the
College’s Brass Band in Residence.
The Choral Conducting programme, led by Andrea Brown, gives
students the unique opportunity to work with a wide range of
amateur and professional choirs, both within and outside RWCMD, as
well as regular masterclasses from some of the world’s leading
choral conductors and chorus masters. NYCGB, Neil Ferris, Jeremy
Summerly, Alice Farnham and Simon Halsey have all recently worked
with the College.
