COURSE DESCRIPTION

The activity of choral conductors holding a degree belongs to the field of choral art. It involves forming new ensembles, leading different types of choirs, actual conducting work. Basically it means to head and manage the artistic work of a choir in the long term with high efficiency. In choral work choral conductors can use their theoretical knowledge, their vocal and partly their instrumental abilities as well. They will be prepared to play an active role in the nourishing choral culture. 
Besides general music theory and music history classes, the training will introduce students to the technique of choral conducting as well as to theoretical and practical issues related to the human voice, voice formation and maintenance, the history of choral music, repertoire, different styles and all the related know-how in all branches of choir music. Choral conducting and learning it at a high level requires personal skills, artistic sensitivity, having a good ear, knowledge of music and, most of all, the individual’s singing culture and knowledge about chamber music.
