Product Description

Evoking Sound Composed by James Jordan. For book. Published by Gia Publications Inc. (Catalog # G4257, UPC: 9780941050838)

Evoking Sound takes a fresh look at the critical link in the choir: the conductor. And it starts from the very first breath. The importance of such a ground-zero approach is fundamental-before one can conduct, one must inspire those being conducted. Only then can the desired end result - a performance that lives up to its full potential-be achieved. Evoking Sound introduces the subtle but important premusical factors that determine a choir's performance. These include the conductor's stance, breathing, and movement. Written by a professor and conductor at Westminster Choir College, this book questions the basics at the most fundamental level, doing so in a way that will engage and inspire the conductor in you. You'll come away from Evoking Sound feeling a renewed sense of the totality of the conducting endeavor, as well as a grasp of how to better evoke sound from many, unique human instruments.
