International Conducting Masterclass 2023 took place in July 2023 at the Silesian Philharmonic. Young conductors from all over the world participated in the Course – 12 of them in the active form (stationary meetings with the Maestro and Symphony Orchestra) and 8 in the passive one (observing the work of Maestro and active participants of the Course).
The main objective of the Masterclass was professionalisation of young conductors and supporting their growth in both: artistic and practical aspects. Their work was observed by Maestro – who analyzed the progress they made during the Course and pointed the fields to work on.
This year Mentor of feature conductors was excellent Lawrence Foster – Music Director of Opera de Marseille, Artistic Director and Chief Conductor of the National Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra and also Juror of the 11th Grzegorz Fitelberg International Competition for Conductors, which will be held in November.
