MUS 52.03 The Art of Conducting: An Introduction to Choral and Orchestral Conducting

This course provides a practical introduction and the theoretical underpinnings for the art of conducting and study of the musical score. At the center of this endeavor is the analysis of music through the lens of the conductor-scholar, which develops in the expression of music through gesture. Students will be required to attend weekly workshops in the art of conducting, as well as in the study and analysis of three major works from the choral and orchestral repertoire. In this course, the students will have the opportunity to conduct Dartmouth’s choral and orchestral ensembles (Glee Club, Handel Society, and Dartmouth Symphony Orchestra).
