Conducting 2 with Live Keyboard Ensemble

Course Number

This course build on basic conducting techniques and covers four areas: first, symphonic conducting with an instrumental soloist (concerto) or chorale; 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 soldatThe Right of Spring, and a motion picture score. 

All students perform instrumental parts on keyboards to create a virtual orchestra for the student conductor.

The course is similar to COND-212 with the addition of live keyboard performance and a motion picture cue, and can be taken as a substitute for COND-212.
