I am writing to request your assistance in spreading the word about the 2017 International Conductors Exchange Program for the next generation of emerging leaders in our profession.
Among the selection criteria for eligibility is the following statement:
- “The candidates should reflect a wide diversity of interests and accomplishments (church, high school, community, elementary, et al.). The ICEP Review Committee will consider a diversity of conductors (e.g. not all from one setting, such as Higher Education).”
In continued efforts to fully represent the rich diversity of our profession, I would like to encourage you to consider ways we can reach a larger segment of our membership who may be interested in participating in this initiative.
Thank you very much for your time and your continued support of this program.
