Green Mountain Academy welcomes Ariel Rudiakov, violist and co-founder of Taconic Music, to give us some insight into the process of conducting an orchestra. Conducting is the art of directing a musical performance, such as an orchestral or choral concert. The primary duties of the conductor are to set the tempo, ensure correct entries by various members of the ensemble, and to "shape" the phrasing where appropriate. This presentation will offer a brief history of conducting with photos and commentary, and insight into technical fundamentals with audience participation. Registration is $15 in advance or $20 at the door. For more information or to register, please call our office at 802-867-0111 or visit our website www.greenmtnacademy.org.
