Tales from the baton of an orchestra conductor - an online talk from Robert Hodge, CCSO Conductor and Musical Director
Our last concert of the season was due to take place on Saturday 20 June. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, we’ve had to cancel it. However we’ve come up with a great alternative. We’ve decided to go online and we’re delighted to invite you to join us for an online talk from our very own conductor Robert Hodge.
In this talk Rob will reveal his plans for next season’s programme and include musical illustrations of some of the pieces that may be less familiar to us. He will share the challenges of compiling a programme for a season and his aspirations in doing so. He will give us some tricks of the trade, such as how to tackle a completely new piece, and some insights into how he approaches preparing an orchestra, containing players with a wide range of capabilities, for a concert.
Do join us for our first public online event. If it goes well we will follow it up with another in due course.
