Sergievsky Posted July 27, 2001 Share Posted July 27, 2001 I just bullshitted my way through getting a gig, musical directing a show with an orchestra. Now, I've MD before, but with just 5piece sessionists. My previous experience with a full orchestra is writing several scores, with a how-to-arrange for orchestra book in one hand and a Sibelius manual in the other, and a short attempt at subbing for a late conductor. I don't have a lotta time left, maybe around three months. Whaddaya think? Possible? Or did I swallow more than I can chew? It's just that, you know, these opportunities don't come very often and I didn't want to pass it up. I just got a video and book from a friend on conducting (don't laugh), but any suggestions will help. FWIW, I'm not completely uneducated, 2 years at Northwestern Univ., Evanston, was all my family could afford, but I'm still relatively new as a musical director. Anyway, thanks in advance for your good and bad comments. Fire away. Raul Raul Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
