CONCERT PROGRAM
Welcome!

Welcome to the culmination of the second-annual DPO International Conducting Workshop, Concert and Competition!

Having received dozens of applications from all over the world, our Music Director Lawrence Golan selected these 12 conductors to participate in this intensive workshop. Arriving last weekend from all corners of the globe, they have spent the week in professional development classes, rehearsing with the orchestra and receiving on-the-spot feedback from Maestro Golan and guest faculty member Gary Lewis.

This experience helps to further develop the orchestra’s watching, listening and ensemble skills as they adjust to a variety of different conductors—all during the same concert!

At the discretion of the faculty, one workshop conductor will be selected to return to Denver next season to conduct a piece on one of our main stage concerts. Will your favorite conductor return?
