Ensemble Experience 2 (PERF5029)


Each student will be assigned to an ensemble for the semester to work with the conductor of that ensemble - this includes: taking rehearsals, sectional work, ensemble management, attending all rehearsals as conductor's assistant (keeping notes, marking up of scores, etc), and some conducting. This gives students the opportunity to work with a conductor for a length of time; to become familiar with the day-to-day work of conducting an ensemble; to learn how to prepare and handle scores; to learn repertoire; to observe and experience the application of skills acquired in Conducting 1-4.
