Thanks for the insight, D! I kind of figured that during rehearsals the conductor would work with the orchestra to get the piece to sound the way he or she wanted, but I was't sure whether the players would really be able to follow his movements during a performance, but turns out they can and do. Cool. I'm guessing that thanks to rehearsals and excellent memory they can play some (maybe a lot) of a piece the way they learned it, but at certain points they are attending to the conductor. So let me ask you this: which do you prefer, playing or conducting?

And yeah man, sign me up for wanting more ride reports!!!!

Also....sent you a PM about a possible mutual music acquaintance....
