This is a TenorView Video.
Ive been singing in my fathers choirs since I was a tyke in the mid-1950s. It has been a priceless musical education. Ive studied each move and expression and marveled how much can be communicated silently. How do you get 50 odd people to do what you want at the right time, with the appropriate phrasing, expressively but precisely, and in pitch? All that and more are passed in the live connection with the performer and by extension, with the audience. Many an audience who came for the music, receives a bonus in the form of expressionistic dance, watching the backside of the conductor.
Conducting is technical and emotional, social and artistic, all simultaneously. I am in even greater awe when he accomplishes this while also accompanying on piano or pipe organ. He can conduct entire pieces with the bobbing and weaving of just his head.
These videos are a testament to my respect and love, and thanks for the privilege of the experience for over 50 years.
This performance was by the St James Festival Choir, Montross, VA, May 6, 2007.
