HFM Summerschool 2020

From August 30 to September 4, 2020, the Saar University of Music is organizing the “HfM Saar Summer School” for the fifth time with a conducting academy under the direction of Prof. Georg Grün.

The conducting academy primarily deals with questions of interpretation, choral sound, intonation and their rehearsal and conducting implementation in a professional context. Particular attention is paid to the expression of the conduction through striking technique and the individual “conducting language” of the participants. This takes place through individual conducting lessons with Prof. Grün, through video coaching with international guests (Ko Matsushita from Japan, Brady Alfred from the USA and Stephen Leek from Australia), through passive participation in the choir rehearsals and directing of the academy ensemble .

Web master classes

Part of the lessons and rehearsals within this year’s Summer School will be offered for the first time via Internet video transmission to students from other German and foreign universities of music and interested parties. Seminars, lectures and rehearsals by external lecturers from abroad are also made available for the participants of the summer school.

Thanks to the support of the Peter and Luise Hager Foundation, active  participants only incur meals and administration costs of 100 euros. Application deadline is July 31, 2020.
