Conducting 2 with Live Keyboard Ensemble

Course Number
COND-217
Description

The course assumes basic conducting technique and covers four areas: first, symphonic conducting with an instrumental soloist (concerto); second, symphonic conducting with a vocal soloist; third symphonic conducting of a major modern work involving frequent meter changes; and finally, symphonic conducting to a motion picture cue. Works used include a romantic instrumental concerto, an operatic aria, a mixed-meter piece such as L’Histoire du soldat or The Rite of Spring, and a motion picture score. When taught on-campus in the conducting lab, all students perform instrumental parts on keyboards to create a virtual orchestra for the student conductor. When taught remotely, the curriculum emphasizes orchestral conducting rehearsal techniques.
