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.
  • David Chan, Metropolitan Opera Concertmaster, will be in residence Weeks 4 & 5 to lead SLP classes.
  • 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 2023 Festival.
