Royal Bangkok Symphony Orchestra
The LAFCI Summer Session is designed for alumni of the The Intensive workshops who are seeking more podium time to further their conducting technique and rehearsal skills with a live orchestra. The Summer Session will host daily sessions with string quintet and full orchestra, culminating with a live concert with each participant conducting their own piece with the Royal Bangkok Symphony Orchestra located in the capitol city of Bangkok. Each participant will receive video and audio recordings of their work as well as video footage of each session with the orchestra.
The Summer Session will focus on film repertoire, participant piece, technique sessions and will be led by faculty member Angel Velez. Below are samples of repertoire, subject to change, with a full list being made available at a later date:
