Exam conductors Henri Christofer Aavik and Benjamin Wenzelberg

Students at the National Master Orchestra Conducting Henri Christofer Aavik and Benjamin will conclude their studies with a challenging programme, on the baton for the North Netherlands Orchestra.

The National Master Orchestra Conducting (NMO) offers ambitious young conductors the chance to gain valuable experience. This programme, a collaboration with the Amsterdam Conservatoire and the Dutch orchestras, aims to train orchestra conductors with a Bachelor of Music at the level required to conduct a professional symphony orchestra in an adequate and artistically sound manner.

In addition, this programme acts as a bridge between academic training and professional practice, with the aim of building and expanding the professional network of participating conductors.
