Rotterdam- International Conducting Competition Rotterdam

ICCR is a unique conducting competition where conductors get the rare chance to actually work with numerous orchestras over a longer period of time. After live selection rounds one year prior to the competition, 6 conductors will enter a training program, that ends in the competition where they each work with 5 different orchestras on different genres and stylistic periods. Each round consists of multiple rehearsals and a concert.

ICCR is organized by the foundation International Conducting Competition Rotterdam in close cooperation with the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and De Doelen. The production of the ICCR is delegated to the same team who is responsible for the renowned International Franz Liszt Piano Competition in Utrecht, directed by Rob Hilberink.
