Intermediate & Senior: What Does the Conductor Do?

Suitable for grades 7–12

Gustavo Gimeno, conductor
Daniel Bartholomew-Poyser, host
Emad Zolfaghari, viola (2019/20 TSYO Concerto Competition winner)

The TSO’s new Music Director, Gustavo Gimeno, takes you through an eye-opening breakdown of what the person on the podium actually does—from being a human metronome to interpreting how the music should sound to conceiving and implementing an artistic vision. You’ll never see the conductor the same way again!

Program includes:*

Samy Moussa: Crimson for Large Orchestra

*Program subject to change
