Maestro on the Podium: Sonic Output
Have you ever wondered exactly what a conductor is doing on the podium or what is going through their head during a performance? One of the few female conductors in the country, Dominique Royem will take us through the language of conducting— demonstrating arm, baton, and hand techniques; explaining what the musicians are looking for from the conductor as they play; and analyzing what is going on in the head of a conductor while conducting a piece. Incorporating both theoretical and practical examples of conducting, the lecture will start with a discussion and demonstration of a simple work, then move to an intermediate work, and culminate with a performance of a highly technical work.
