High priority will be devoted to conducting technique through daily masterclasses, both with the baton and without, to instill confidence leading an orchestra and cast. The art of collaboration will be explored with guest artists including directors, choreographers, arrangers, actors, copyists, and programmers. A survey of Broadway musical styles as they developed through the last 100 years will also be part of the curriculum.
