Musical Leadership Programme


_dsc0136--1-Voces Academy are offering an exciting new programme in Oxford throughout 2017 aimed at developing young musicians at the start of their careers.  There are six positions for choral musicians who are interested in developing their musical leadership skills.

As this is a pilot programme, the initial period of engagement will be from May to December 2017.

Throughout the programme, participants will undertake two primary activities:

  • Participating in conducting masterclasses (minimum four) – with a focus on developing conducting gesture and rehearsal technique
  • Singing for executive leadership workshops (minimum five) – taking a closer look at how leaders are perceived and leadership skills are developed; mentoring corporate leaders through the discipline of music

Participants will also become part of the larger Voces Academy network, with access to other learning opportunities as they arise, including masterclasses, performances, networking and mentoring from experienced professional singers and conductors.  Each of the six musicians will be awarded a £400 honorarium to contribute towards their studies and/or living expenses.

Applications close 19th April 2017.
