- Registration for the 2024 symposium will open online on September 15, 2023.
- You may register as a Conductor ($150) or as a non-conducting Participant ($100).
- Conductor status is on a first-come, first served basis. After all the slots are filled, further conductor applicants will be given participant status and will be placed on a waiting list for conductor status. There is no limit to the number of Participant.
- Conductors are assigned two 20-minute podium times with the UCF Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band (wind ensemble track) or with the UCF Symphony Orchestra and String Orchestra (orchestral track).

- The Conductors Symposium and Knights Rising High School Honor Band schedules are designed to work in conjunction with one another so directors can take advantage of learning opportunities with both events.
