Llíria City of Music Conducting Competition

Posted by Euan Shields Category: Category 1

I am excited to being chosen to participate in the first the Llíria City of Music international Conducting Competition on July 12-17, 2021. The contest was structured in 4 phases, and a pre-selection was made through video recordings, with 25 conductors selected for the first phase. I was excited to advance to the semi-final round of six contestants. I conducted the first three phases:

First Phase (25 contestants)
Stravinsky, Igor. L’historie du soldat.

Second Phase (12 contestants)
Tchaikovsky, Pyotr Ilyich. Serenade for Strings in C Major, Op. 48.

Third Phase (6 contestants)
Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus. Symphony No. 29 in A Major, Kv. 201.

I was very honored to spend such an amazing time with so many talented conductors, jurors, and musicians.
