What if there were a conducting course that provided conductors with
the opportunity to work with soloist and professional orchestra on two complete concertos? What if there were a course for soloists that gave them the opportunity to work with a conductor and professional orchestra on two complete concertos? What if this course also included daily instruction and mentoring from prominent conductors and soloists plus
two public concerts featuring all participating students? The International Institute for Conductors faculty posed these questions and answered with the creation of Mastering the Concerto, a groundbreaking intensive course that pairs conductors with aspiring soloists for 12 days of study, instruction and performance.
Since 2009 Jeunesses Musicales has been organising the masterclasses in the UNESCO city of Ohrid, welcoming participants from Germany, Austria, Russia, Croatia, Slovenia, Georgia, Greece and Macedonia.
The final concerts are been held at the beautiful St. Sofia Church as a part of the Ohrid Summer Festival.
