Discover how conductors attempt to understand the wishes of composers (dead or alive!), translate them into body language and lead a group of other musicians they just met to work as a team to bring the music to life. Enjoy a live demonstration with a small ensemble from the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra. This presentation was recorded on the Main Stage at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery during Beaker Street Festival 2022.


This video was recorded at Beaker Street Festival, an annual celebration of science and art held in Hobart, Tasmania each August.  It’s a place to share ideas, culture, and excellent Tassie food and drink — bringing warmth, connection and inspiration to lutruwita/Tasmania’s winter. The Festival promises entertainment, education, debate, and community in a participatory atmosphere.
