Inspired by Orpheus: Collaborative Rehearsal and Performance in the Large Ensemble Setting
- What happens when our large ensemble musicians are charged with rehearsal and performance of repertoire? In what ways are students empowered and engaged with the elements of large ensemble music making under these conditions? How might such an approach enrich the education of students at all levels of instruction? The musicians of The Ohio State University Symphonic Band will rehearse two compositions without aid of a conductor/coach during this rehearsal laboratory.
