Tomáš Netopil – violinist and conductor, winner of the George Solti International Conducting Competition in 2002, has accepted the role of lecturer at our International Conducting Courses. For one week, he will lead 8 talented young conductors from the USA, Japan, South Korea, Germany, Ukraine, Spain and Switzerland. Maestro Netopil, as one of the most important living Czech conductors, can pass on his experience and influence the future career of all participants. After a week of intensive work, which is always very demanding and requires a lot of concentration, young conductors will demonstrate their skills at a joint concert. It will take place on January 29, without the personal participation of the audience, but we will publish the records of the individual parts here, on FB and at YT JFO.
