String Leadership Program

led by Glenn Dicterow

Under the direction of former New York Philharmonic Concertmaster Glenn Dicterow, the String Leadership Program offers five violinists an intensive opportunity to explore concertmaster excerpts and the fundamentals of leading a string section, as well as reviewing concert etiquette.
  • Participants in the program will meet weekly in a private masterclass, performing excerpts for one another and discussing the roles and responsibility of being a leader in an orchestra.
  • SLP masterclasses will be led by Mr. Dicterow weeks 1-3, and 6-8. SLP masterclasses weeks 4 & 5 will be led by guest teaching artist Rainer Honeck, Vienna Philharmonic Concertmaster.
  • Concertmasters and principal seconds for Academy Festival Orchestra concerts will be selected from participants of the String Leadership Program.
  • Section seating rotates each concert.
  • All violin fellows are eligible to audition for the SLP upon enrollment in the 2022 Festival.
