BSO’s associate conductor Frank Zielhorst this morning led a master class for music students at Falmouth University.
Working with around 17 students, Frank explained the basics of conducting before asking for some participation from the students, practising their arm swinging!
Once everyone had mastered their conducting arm and after a quick re-fuel, a small ensemble was formed allowing the remaining students to master their techniques. Almost everyone took a turn at conducting or playing and everyone flourished on Frank’s enthusiasm and knowledge.
Tonight will see Frank attending Truro Sinfonia to rehearse for the community event at RNAS Culdrose on Saturday.
