Preparing You For A Professional Life In Conducting

The graduate choral conducting program prepares students for the challenges of professional life in conducting, which includes academic teaching at the college level or public schools, in major church or community jobs, or working with professional ensembles and orchestras. This select graduate choral conducting program gives individual attention to each student with small conducting seminars, intensive choral literature seminars, and a large amount of podium time.

Graduate students sing in one or more ensembles, assist with Concert Choir and Chorale, and conduct University Chorus and Treble Choir. There are additional opportunities in Madison for church jobs and community choruses. The program has two dedicated Teaching Assistantships and one dedicated Fellowship, which are offered in rotation.
