Bridge Music - Teaching and Making Music through Conducted Chamber Music

  • thumbnail for U.S. Naval Academy Band Chamber Winds, Charles Peltz, William Drury
  • Chamber music creates musicians more strengthened in individual independence and sensitive to group interdependence. But what happens when the abilities of some players to be independent are mitigated by those still needing a conductor to provide ensemble stability? During this session, directors of musicians at all levels will be presented with music for ensembles of 8 to 14 players which while conducted, provides both a full music experience and a bridge to unconducted chamber music.
