Artist faculty Markand Thakar, conducting, will give the keynote address at the 45th Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference of the College Music Society, which takes place in High Point, North Carolina on March 19-21. CMS Regional Conferences are held each spring in nine locations across North America and rotate to various locations and types of institutions throughout each regional chapter. Through a variety of formats, these programs provide the opportunity to consider the philosophy and practice of music as an integral part of higher education.
This summer Thakar will be teaching at the International Conducting Institute workshop in Kromeriz, Czech Republic July 28 – August 14, 2015. Thakar is also featured on Christian Howe’s homepage in the first installment of a two-part podcast on achieving transcendent musical performances.
