Assistant Professor of Music Lance Inouye has been named a winner of the thirteenth annual International Conductors Workshop and Competition, held January 15-18, 2016, in Spring Hill, Georgia.
Sixteen participants representing Hong Kong, China, Xalapa, Mexico, Pihtipudas, Finland, Chinandega, Nicaragua, Yilon, Taiwan, Mexico City, Mexico, and Indiana, California, Arizona, New York, Ohio, Florida, North Carolina, Alabama and Georgia, conducted the professional ICWC orchestra on a culminating free concert on Martin Luther King Jr. Day in works by Beethoven, Brahms, Dvorak, Tchaikovsky, Barber, Mendelssohn, Verdi, and Johann Strauss, Jr.
The conductors participated in seven rehearsals during the four day workshop which has become one of the most well-known and highly regarded conductor training programs in the nation. Maestro Adrian Gnam, director of the ICWC, said, “I was really excited about this group of conductors. They have already shown great potential as conductors from the orchestras which they have conducted. This concert was absolutely wonderful, and it showed the progress the conductors made in such a short time.”
The other two winners, in addition to Dr. Inouye, were Sergey Bogza, originally from Taganrog, Russia now conducting in St. Cloud, Minnesota; and H. Lok Kim, originally from Seoul, South Korea who now conducts the Covenant Academy Orchestra in Ringgold, Georgia.
The conductors were led through intense instruction on orchestral conducting technique, rehearsal procedure and musical preparation of standard repertoire for full symphony orchestra. As part of his award, Dr. Inouye will be invited to guest conduct in Georgia next year.

September 12Events at Lewis & Clark examine contemporary and historical issues.
July 29With help from a handful of Lewis & Clark students and alumni, as well as resources from Fir Acres Theatre, Professor of Theatre Štěpán Šimek and Assistant Professor of Theatre Rebecca Lingafelter will stage a production of Anton Chekhov’s The Three Sisters, returning to the “fierce sparseness” of the original Russian in a new English translation.
May 28Erica Terpening-Romeo B.A. ’14 is a distinguished scholar, seasoned thespian, skilled writer, successful entrepreneur, and recipient of two of Lewis & Clark’s highest annual honors—the Rena J. Ratte Award and the Senior Woman Recognition Award, given by the American Association of University Women. Never before has a graduating student received both of these prestigious awards.
April 25In a collective effort to distinguish Portland as a center of classical theatre, a current student and a recent Lewis & Clark alumna are helping nearly 20 of the city’s performance companies produce all of Shakespeare’s tragedies, comedies, and histories—and many of his poems—over the course of two years.
