- The “singing Conductor” is a process by which one approaches making the choral art come alive.
- Singing Conductors lead choirs that sing from the inside out. They are completely aware of the technical aspects of choral music, but also deeply rooted in the understanding of the work.
- There are 4 characteristics of the Singing Conductor:
- they have a heightened sensitivity to building sound
- they emphasize sound for sound’s sake, and also sound that is directly connected to the context of the piece
- they often see technical issues as opportunities for vocal warm ups
- they place a high emphasis on communication and expression
- Think about your process. Look at conductors you admire, and figure out their approach.
