Conducting an orchestra is a skill that has existed and has been refined through many centuries and in many cultures. Internationally-renowned conductor Gustav Meier takes us through time to explore the history of his art, and explains what it means to conduct an orchestra today.
Gustav Meier is known internationally as a teacher of conductors. He has led orchestras around the globe while teaching at Yale University, the Eastman School of Music, the University of Michigan and the Tanglewood Music Center. He is currently Director of the Greater Bridgeport Symphony Orchestra and is on the faculty of the Peabody Conservatory. Gustav will sign copies of his new book, 'The Score, The Orchestra, And The Conductor.' Copies of the book will be on sale at the event.
