About the Symposium

Due to situations surrounding Covid-19 and social distancing restrictions, the 2020 Kansas City Conducting Symposium has been canceled. 

Symposium dates: June 14-19, 2020 

Join us at the Kansas City Conducting Symposium, an inspirational program for conductors from every field wanting to improve at the art of conducting.

KCCS participants conduct a chamber music ensemble five times during the week on repertoire chosen by our faculty clinicians. Postural analysis to help move in a healthy manner is a also vital part of the week. There will also be daily sessions presented on the following topics of artistic music making: pedagogy, gesture, rehearsal techniques, chamber music coaching, historical contexts, philosophy and literature. Steven D. Davis, alongside numerous UMKC Conservatory faculty and distinguished guest clinicians have designed a symposium to help conductors serve their musicians, and offer ways to make an immediate difference with any ensemble.

Tracks available in Winds, Orchestral, and Choral.
