Nurturing the next generation of conductors.

David Zinman set up the American Academy of Conducting at the Aspen Music festival in 2000. “We all paid attention in the world when David created it because it was a beautiful thing he did,” says conductor Robert Spano, David Zinman’s passion is the nurturing of young talent, which shows in his commitment as a teacher of conducting.

In the summer of 2010 he launched the International Conducting Course as part of the Zurich Festival. More than 100 aspiring conductors apply for the course each year.
