Virtual Conductor Project

The purpose of the Year 5 Immersion Virtual Conductor program is to provide the ability for our students to receive online training and mentoring from some of Australia’s best musicians and/or conductors. The project would provide the means to allow James Morrison, Richard Gill, possibly Andre Rieu and others, to run a rehearsal of the Immersion Concert Band or String Ensemble, or provide a master class for students learning a particular instrument. The project will use technology such as Microsoft Lync to remove the high cost and travel implications of engaging high calibre performers, conductors and educators to work with our students. Further to this, as this new technology will be mobile, many other departments would be able to utilise this resource to connect and collaborate with others from around the globe.
