Malko Academy for Young Conductors is a very intense two-year training programme for young talents from Europe, aged 18-25.
The purpose of the academy is to give young, promising musicians a solid foundation in the skills of conducting, and to experience conducting professional orchestral musicians and choir singers.
The academy is aimed at highly gifted musicians who already show exceptional promise in their instrumental or voice studies and who have a strong desire to one day become a top-class professional conductor. The lessons are mainly scheduled at weekends, starting Friday evening, and ending Sunday afternoon, thus enabling students to travel to Copenhagen from all over Europe. Occasionally, classes will be scheduled on weekdays in order to give students the possibility to follow a world class conductor working with the Danish National Symphony Orchestra.
The plans for the International Malko Academy are rooted in our 6 years of experience with the Danish Malko Academy, where we have been working with highly gifted young conductors living in Denmark.
