The Young Conductor VII – gaining experience

THE YOUNG CONDUCTOR VII: GAINING EXPERIENCE.  ” I always felt that when the conductor asked someone to sing, the conductor owed the singer, not the other way around. So if there was a schedule or other conflict there was little sense of loyalty to the ensemble. So when I started my first chamber choir, I quite deliberately did not ask any of my friends to sing. If they decided to audition, that was fine–they were indicating their interest in singing in the choir.
