Jolyn Rachel TangHi, I've got two questions. I'd like to know how you decide on the scores an orchestra plays, especially the pop concerts. (I'm assuming you have the liberty to do that.) And how does one become a conductor? Thanks. =)
Wandering NessieI'd like to know what exactly a conductor does...on an average day (music-related), one (or two) week(s) before a concert, three days before, on the concert day, on stage, after bump-out... ;-)
Dimpel BhayaniNot a question but just awe that conductors need to know every single note and part an instrument/ musician plays in an orchestra... For 3 hour operas! I guess there is a question... How do you do it? How do you practise when you don't have the orchestra assembled for you everyday.. Or do you?
Ng Hwee Khengbest possible scan outcome, your pic is too big. really hope your supporters can read this at higher visibility. it's a very well written article on the Conducting vocation but briefly what this all means in the music sector. appreciate the sharing on why podium time's limitations made it hard for more student conductors to be trained. Brunei has no formal orchestra but a few intl schools such as Jerudong Intl sch orchestra has performed for royal dignitaries such as Prince Charles. can do some training conducting/performing there?Package and go get your endorsement deal with 100plus or some fancy watch etc to raise more private funding to do more! Best of wishes for 16/17 to come.
Sarah SanthanaAgree with you Jason! The article is a well written..taken right out of your mouth! And some parts like "thinking outside the box" is very important even for those who are professionals..instrumentalists and vocalists. Sometimes it becomes regimental and if we want the next generation to follow through, they will definitely need fresh ideas and not all theoretical.😊
Join Singapore Symphony Orchestra Music Director, Lan Shui, as he conducts the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory Orchestra for the first time. Tonight’s programme features the delightful Sinfonia Concertante by Mozart, featuring faculty members Qian Zhou and Zhang Manchin as soloists. The orchestra will then perform Dmitri Shostakovich’s powerful, tragic and savage masterpiece: Symphony No. 10. Often referred to as Shostakovich’s “portrait of Stalin”, this is the first symphonic work written after the composer’s denunciation in 1948.
