Applicants are requested to answer all question concerning education and experience by filling out the application form. Give short answers and give only essential and recent information about conducting.
Based on the applications submitted, candidates will be selected by the jury to the participate in the masterclasses as active participant.
Applicants who are not selected can be invited to participate as passive participant and put on a reserve list. Unfortunately we have a limited number of places, but in case a selected participant cancels or fails to be present, we will invite the next on the reserve list or a passive participant to participate actively. (read more about participation below)
The successful applicants will be invited and notified latest 9th of June 2017 per email. Participants must confirm their participation by email and pay the participation fee within a week from the day of the participation confirmation from the Academy - the applicant will be automatically excluded from participation if she or he will fail doing so. The vacant place(s) will be offered to candidate(s) selected as passive participant(s)!
In case of cancellations, a passive participant can be invited to participate actively. Passive participants who do not confirm their participation in time, will lose their position on the reserve list.
Interested audience, musicians etc. can apply to be auditor during the masterclasses (please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org). Auditors are not participants and therefore not placed on the reserve list, don’t conduct and don’t receive certificates. Auditors have however access to all rehearsals of the Järvi Academy and to concerts of the Pärnu Music Festival
Active participants will participate in all activities of the masterclass, including conducting orchestra rehearsals, piano sessions and lectures. Before every academy concert teachers will select which participants will conduct during that concert. Every Active participant will conduct the orchestra(s) almost daily supervised by the teachers. Additionally there will be a concert and general rehearsal to which active participants can be assigned to conduct.
Student participants take part and be present in all the masterclass activities, including sessions with pianos, but will conduct only once in front of the orchestra. Their minimum conducting time is not guaranteed. Student participants will replace an Active participant, in case one cancels or fails to be present.
Passive Participants take part and be present in all the masterclass activities, but do not conduct in orchestra rehearsals. However during the sessions with pianos they will be at least once scheduled to have a lesson with one of the teachers. Passive participants may be invited replace other participants, in case one cancels or fails to be present.
All participants need to obtain their own scores, study and prepare them for the masterclass rehearsals and other sessions. The full repertoire and masterclass program can be found on the website www.parnumusicfestival.ee, however changes are possible. Confirm participants will be informed about the final repertoire and/or changes.
The organizers reserve the right of radio and television broadcast. The participants are not entitled to demand any charge for the utilization of such recordings or broadcasting.
