SOV Conducting Masterclass
The youngest project of our talent development trajectory: an international masterclass for young conductors. During three days, some young talents are given the opportunity to work together with our orchestra, under the direction of chief conductor Kristiina Poska. Master and apprentice, side by side! Together they study some absolute repertoire pieces and the magical art of conducting.
Save the date: season 2022-23
From 18 to 21 August 2022 the third edition of the SOV Conducting Masterclass takes place in Muziekcentrum De Bijloke Ghent. We give three young and ambitious conductors the chance to work with chief-conductor Kristiina Poska and the musicians of Flanders Symphony Orchestra. This year we will be focusing on Symphony no. 6 of Ludwig van Beethoven and on new music.
New in season 2022–23
In partnership with SPECTRA (ensemble for new music) and artistic leader Filip Rathé, the participants will explore Flemish Contemporary music for ensemble.
