The programme is targeted at accomplished young professionals who are likely to become decision-makers, thought leaders, and influential voices in their respective fields. Fellows will be recruited from a broad range of areas such as politics and public policy, law, media, business, the non-governmental sector, and the arts. The programme provides fellows the opportunity to spend one year in Germany, where they will network with other prospective leaders from abroad and explore new solutions to the global issues of our times. This prestigious programme builds on Germany’s established and growing reputation as a favored destination for problem-focused international dialogue and a meeting place for tomorrow’s international leaders.

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.
