Conducting an Orchestra as a Graduate Teaching Assistant
The University Wind Ensemble and University Symphony Orchestra will present their first performance of 2021 on Wednesday, March 3 at 7:30 pm. The performance will feature a diverse selection of composers ranging from classical to contemporary, including works from J.S. Bach, Ruth Gipps, Paul Hindemith, Rob Smith, Igor Stravinsky, Akira Toda, Edgard Varese, and George Walker. Three graduate orchestral teaching assistants will lead the University Symphony Orchestra in conducting Stravinsky’s Dumbarton Oaks. Hisham Groover will conduct Mvmt 1, Andrew J. Kim will conduct Mvmt 2, and David Carillo will conduct Mvmt 3. We asked them to share their insights about the piece they will be conducting.
