Westminster Conducting Institute Day 4

This will be a short post, as the editor has score study to do for conducting class tomorrow. Good thing my smart phone has a metronome…

A busy day at the institute today. Morning warm ups as usual, then a great lecture on diction by Charles Bruffy. It’s amazing how many ways there are to pronounce Lux. Charles is an expert at creating beauty by stretching the parts of a word and adding breath to the sound.  All three of us got to conduct during class today, and ended the day with a reading of a new edition of a Brahms motet for four-part choir and one piano four hands.  Sign ups for the Master Class are tomorrow morning.  I expect to conduct on Saturday.
