The Loft Project: 2016 Conductor in Residence

Newcastle Youth Orchestra aims to support young and upcoming local conductors and composers through our residency program. In 2016, NYO is excited to welcome Melbourne-based conductor, Mark Shiell who will mentor a select number of conductors in training. Mark will operate two private workshops with the selected conductors on August 7th and 21st, and participate in a public masterclass on September 16th. The recipients will study techniques of orchestral conducting, preparation strategies and study a select repertoire which will be presented at NYO's next concert. NYO was a successful candidate for grant and sponsorship of the Loft Project, kindly provided by AYO in 2016.
