Conductor

"...synchronizing the imaginations of the ensemble with the experiences of the listener."

Exploring the Human Spirit

         If music reflects the world around it, then each composition is a time capsule containing the culture, spirit, and philosophy of the past. Each performance is like an adventure in a time machine; The memories and experiences of people and composers  are reawakened and reimagined by our modern minds. A conductor is but a guide on this adventure, not dictating, but synchronizing the imaginations of the ensemble with the experiences of the listener.

         Collectively, we can immerse ourselves in the passion of Verdi and Komitas. We can search for ourselves in the piety of Bach and Palestrina.  We can tour the endless infinity through the lifestyles of modern composers.  When we decide to join a conductor on a journey, each composer, each composition allows us explore the human spirit.
