Several aspiring young conductors are on campus this weekend, under the tutelage of Mark Gibson, to learn selections from Giuseppe Verdi’s La Traviata and Don Carlos.  Twelve conductors from all corners of the United States arrive at CCM on Friday to work with Maestro Gibson, Philharmonia Orchestra, Concert Orchestra, and singers from CCM’s renowned Opera Program.  The weekend culminates in an exhibition performance of selections from the two operas in a concert setting.  The opera selections are performed in the original languages, Italian (La Traviata) and French (Don Carlos), without supertitles.
