National Master Orchestral Conducting
The National Master Orchestral Conducting is a cooperation between the Royal Conservatoire, the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, and the Dutch professional orchestras. The main goal of the programme is to prepare young conductors for the high level that is required to lead a professional orchestra technically and artistically adequately. For this purpose, students in the programme get the opportunity to gain experience as assistant conductor at different Dutch orchestras.
