Get a glimpse of the dazzling young conductors of tomorrow. NEC's orchestral conducting program was reorganized and reenergized in 2009-10 under the direction of NEC's Stanford and Norma Jean Calderwood Director of Orchestras, Hugh Wolff. A highly selective, two-year, graduate-level curriculum that offers the Master of Music degree, the orchestral conducting major is designed to develop the artistic, leadership, and aural skills needed to prepare the most talented young conductors for a professional orchestra career. The Lab Orchestra is composed of the conductors' peers, many of whom will go on to orchestral careers themselves.
