National Institute for Directing and Ensemble Creation


Linda Parris-Bailey will be a returning faculty member for the National Institute for Directing and Ensemble Creation to be held in Minneapolis, MN. The National Institute for Directing and Ensemble Creation was conceived in response to the dearth of professional opportunities for directors in the U.S., particularly directors of color and women, and to the lack of in-depth ensemble training in various forms for future aesthetics. As a recognized leader in the field, Linda will give a perspective of African American directing and ensemble practices that are often overlooked when discussing the history and methods of ensemble creation and directing.
