Meet Augustina Kapoti

 

Augustina Kapoti is looking forward to working as the Junior Conducting Fellow of the Zemel Choir for the 2019/2020 season. Augustina studied Musicology at the School of Philosophy in the University of Athens. She has been distinguished in two orchestral conducting Masterclasses/Competitions: New York 2014 and Graz 2017. Augustina was accepted to pursue a Master’s Degree in Orchestral Conducting from both the Boston Conservatory and Bard College-Conservatory of Music in New York receiving a full scholarship. She graduated with a Master’s Degree in Orchestral and Choral Conducting where her teachers included Harold Farberman and Dr.James Bagwell. During her studies in New York she also had the opportunity to attend Composition classes with the prestigious composers George Tsontakis and Joan Tower. Two of her compositions were selected to be performed by the ‘’Da Capo Chamber Players’’ and notable reviews followed. While in New York, she met and was invited to follow Maestro Jeffrey Milarsky in his rehearsals and concerts.
Augustina had the honour to pursue her second Master’s Degree in Choral Conducting with Simon Halsey, CBE at the University of Birmingham in the U.K. and before graduating she was appointed Music Director and Conductor of the Northfield Notes Community Choir. In December 2018, Augustina was commissioned by the London Symphony Orchestra- Chorus and Simon Halsey to be one of his assistant conductors for the U.K. premiere ‘’Public Domain’’ by David Lang at the Barbican Centre in London. Augustina currently works as a freelance conductor.
