Professional Training Workshops

The Carnegie Hall Choral Workshop with Helmut Rilling

Founded in 1990 by the late Robert Shaw, the Carnegie Hall Choral Workshop gathers choral directors and singers—both professionals and exceptionally talented amateurs—to prepare and perform great masterworks. This season legendary German conductor Helmuth Rilling leads the 15th annual workshop, featuring a new completion by Robert Levin of Mozart's Mass in C Minor. Kathy Saltzman Romey will assist in the preparation of the chorus. The workshop includes five days of intensive choral, solo, and orchestral rehearsals of the works. The workshop will culminate in a final performance at Carnegie Hall with Maestro Rilling conducting the chorus and the Orchestra of St. Luke's.

70 singers will be selected by a competitive application process. Applications for workshop auditors will also be accepted. Applicants must be 18 years of age or older.

This year's workshop will include a master class for choral conductors. From among the 70 chosen singers, 4 participants will be selected to conduct in the master class. The selected four will have the opportunity to conduct the chorus with a small ensemble of instrumentalists, and receive feedback from Maestro Rilling. For those interested in applying for these positions, additional application material is required.
