This project served as an immersive experience in orchestral conducting, which encompassed score study, ensemble organization, rehearsal and performance. The project was split into two distinct parts: First, in the fall semester of 2012, I rehearsed the Macalester Orchestra in Bohuslav Martinů's Memorial to Lidice and conducted the work in December of 2012. The second part occurred in the spring semester of 2013, when I assembled a chamber orchestra of Macalester students and community members to rehearse and perform a concert of three works: Franz Joseph Haydn's Notturno in C Major, Hob. II:25, Richard Wagner's Siegfried Idyll and Richard Strauss's Serenade for Winds, Op. 7.
