Conducting for Silent Film
This course functions as a companion to FS-484 Scoring Silent Films 1, and prepares the students in that course for the specific challenges of conducting music live to picture in a concert setting. It is to be taken concurrently with FS-484. Use of punches and streamers will be emphasized, as well as rehearsal technique. The course will culminate in a live performance of a silent film from a previous semester, and will prepare the students to conduct their own music the following semester in FS-485 Scoring Silent Films 2.
