School District of Philadelphia Students Can Now Identify as Non-Binary

"Students can now identify as non binary for those of you not up on bulk vocabulary. That means, not that they are transgender. This is beyond that. They are neither gender. Students are allowed to change their gender without providing legal documentation or a guardian consent. All they have to do is say it. For the first time students in the school district of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, as I pointed out, and it's taken years for me to realize this. Philadelphia has been ruined more than any other city. Its culture, its cultural life, its artistic life, its schools, the criminality, Philadelphia, vice with San Francisco as perhaps the worst city in the country at this time because of the left. With what they've done to one of the most renowned orchestras on the face of the earth, Philadelphia orchestra, the crap that they had them play, which I announced before COVID. Remember, they had a piece where they had a black kid reciting something with the orchestra playing and he screams curse words and yells at white, and that was a Philadelphia orchestra piece. Which I read the words for you at the time. It was about four years ago. It must be depressing to live in Philadelphia. Look at it. It ain't it ain't great in LA. Let me make something clear. Hardly, I mean, it's a contest for the bottom. It's a race to the bottom of every single major American city. Every single one.

Pedophile seems to be the pedophile and sex offender seems to be the common thread connecting Black Lives Matter and antifa.

Walker saw Wisconsin. This is a hate crime. This is a hate crime as sure as when that psychotic and South Carolina has shot up for black church. They won't be treated as a hate crime. It won't be treated as that. He'll probably get very good lawyers and he'll who knows who knows. Maybe he'll get a slap on the wrist.

"This right. Yeah yup yup mizzou at just testimony to the fact that sometimes negative negative. I'm sure he wasn't trying to you. Know just wasn't the same wavelength but sometimes the motivating factor. So how does that jump happened. first of all before i do that i want people to know that this is no gimmicky flash in the pan. How many times have y'all performed as the monarch you know. And and some of the places that you've performed and then we'll come back to like how more current but just to let people know where we're going with this right. Let them know. yeah. I mean so. Every time we take the stage is as is as an orchestral ensemble. We've been doing this for maybe twenty. Three twenty four years on stage with with with non. We know we performed at the kimmel center carnegie hall kennedy center. You spoke about now. We saw out that same room that he filmed the twentieth anniversary. Avail matic with the national symphony. Orchestra performed Hall with a sixty piece orchestra on there was part of the amazon symphony orchestra You know we've we've taken into some places man in. It's it's never been a gimmick for us because this is how i hear the music you know in you know whenever i put together an orchestration is always with a full ensemble in mind. You know even if we're doing a cover like i'll stretch something like we will cover the route so widow cover of of something else. You know the the symphony or cream or something. I'll put us orchestral. Feel to so for me. This is always how how. I've heard the music. So it's never been a gimmick for us you know but it's been an enjoyable experience because now you have people who like us grew up in our our age group. You know who listened to the classical listen to hip hop. They had children who now play the cello or play. The violin were probably pia no in their stage and they see people who look like them playing hip hop you know. That's that's the that's the most important part for us. Yeah and and believe me. I know it can be insulting to even use the word gimmick with what you do but i never know. Who's listening to this. You know i mean absolutely the heads. No we already know. You don't have to tell us you don't have to explain it but for some folks and to be fair you know the way hip hop is portrayed to the rest of the world if you're not familiar with the culture or the inner workings and and the kind of intersections that we're talking about today you know you just don't you have absolutely so. How does that jump happen from being kind of musically minded who. I went ahead middle school. I play the trombone when i switched it a shallow. You mentioned the cello. I wanted to play the harmonica because my dad was a blues jazz. Go yeah so. I'm listening to you. Know a muddy waters and folks like that house wolf. And i'll try to harmonic. They don't they. Don't offer that in school. You know what i mean. So i had to play these other things and i never took to it but i was already kind of even in the you know martines. I was already as we were coming up kinda parallel to hip hop. But you know. My ear was tuned to the radio. Mayor was tuned to our be slashed hip hop stuff. Right if you introduce this to me in in in school. I would have been much more eager to figure out how to you know may have to play ever be iraq. Kim joints on the cello. So i can see where obviously this gets young people engaged but but you were setting. A blueprint said there was no blueprint. You made the blue. How how do you take that for being a musically minded person with some you know hip hop influences and turning it into now putting these things together not just in your living room in a pause state in so so for me. The you know i. I knew that there was something. More than just snatching a several. Beethoven vivaldi or or something like that for me. Always kind of envisioned are now. I wanna you know envision. Myself running the boston pops or fronting the philadelphia orchestra and then we got the opportunity. I remember early on The kimmel center. Which is philadelphia's version of carnegie hall started opening up. They broke ground and there was a newspaper article about a gentleman who's looking to bring in a different audience to to the classical rome. I mean you can only play beethoven's nine so many times for your subscriber needs something else or the age themselves out. Which is what's happening now on classical music Interesting yeah so. I went down there i asked for meeting and i played in my stuff and he was like. Wow this is awesome. Let's see if we can combine what it is that you do with some you know some philadelphia orchestra members. And i'm i'm going away here. I am a kid from north philly like this happening. My dream is happening. when were you bringing them. What what what was your demo. Just you and like some concepts or did you have some people plan already. Or what was it so i. I'd already sample stuff. I was at that point. Where i was mixing like three or four different orchestrations in you know much much like the from mir with would layer samples that makes them sal. I was doing that. You know at that time with classical music with the vision of say. Let's do this. let's ride. We had already had four out songs with three verses. Choruses like over this over this music so it was. It was a fully formed idea. I just sheet music at the time so we can. We combine that. And you know. We wound up doing a performance at the flow at the kimmel center There somersaults to celebration. And i remember vividly because we drew a bigger audience than its at permanent who also performing at the celebration rights to this lines around the theater. You know in anticipation of what this is gonna be we it. I don't even know classical. And i know he talking about which examine the downside is that you know That can only travel so far. Because if you can imagine me trying to drive drag fifty to sixty zero wipe people out to a club to reproduce this you know. I realized that. I had to go in a different direction star. I started reaching out to colleges started. Local restarted temple drexel analyst trying to get younger musicians. Who like myself who listening to hip hop and that's when it really kind of took off because now you can see people who know the music they know both the classical side in the hip hop side and they they love the fact that it's it's being combined and you can see it in the play in that translates to own it so then we started seeing more people who looked us in the audience. That kind of grew from there on that that allowed us to kind of get our get our name known. And then you get into places like carnegie hall on the kennedy center and things like that And that's that's kind of how that how that happened but it all started with me. Knock going to endorse and hey listen to this. You've you're looking for. Some new was good to have somebody that received that. Let's where we're not gonna endorse and we have that vision that we have the you know that connection and you get people that are you know opposed to that. I'm sure that has come up in your travels in other was you may go to an institution and say hey look this what we do. We've done it at the kimmel. Show data kennedy center and they're like. Yeah but you know when it happens all the time. I still get people who like. I don't know if that's gonna work. I'm like how much does it cost to rent out the theater right. They will rent it out and we'll sell it out in all. Can we book you next year. No good we don't we don't pack the place twenty five hundred and i own the box office so i don't need to perform this anymore. Right made the money that i need to make. So we get getting the receipts receipts to the actual Absolutely right like Yeah we've we've been met with opposition but you know i always thought it any artists that's always starting out with seldom expect thousand dollars for every yes but.

Not since nineteen eighty seven. Though i wasn't i wasn't hanging around that long i mean i was around right. You know i was playing. Paul revere in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven. You know it's funny. Just obviously as a dj suspend. I do some things. I always loved the. What is it the walter murphy band. Beethoven's fifth disco joint debates over fifty. Beethoven that's it so it's been a favorite thing in my so obviously you know to come up and start tracking folks and paying attention of folks who are using hip hop in innovative ways. Outside of what would be typically known as mere entertainment. You know folks are using orchestration. Full ensembles for orchestras. I've seen some some of the are icons of farrell march rocking alive. Basie gnaws do it with the symphony orchestras and such so says. It's a beautiful thing when you when you witness it And i know that you've been kind of Just in the center of that for so long before they might have been doing in name. I assure people do hip theater as like. Yeah i mean. Hamilton's nice but we doing it right for sure. Answer tell me about the history of like how you start putting together how long you've been rocking this this concept of merging. These two worlds so so for me. I grew up in a household it was full with music. You know my my father had a large record collection. He wasn't a dj but he had everything from from motown's and are and my mom. She sang in church choirs. She was always singing around the house and she put me in via lessons when i was like eight years old. You know so. It's really kind of keep me out of trouble. I was you know. We've we lived in a rough neighborhood. So you know she had to give me some extracurricular activities wouldn't be out there in the street understa. Where'd you up with. Was this woman before the crack epidemic. So if you get if you could imagine you know it was a neighborhood then transformed into something totally different in delayed eighties in the early nineties for me. You know having had that that background music. I remember vividly. my brother bringing home. Paul revere you know sit there and listen to it in for me like i heard all of that and that once you know. I'm sitting around. The living room floor may have been twelve. Thirteen men inch. I wonder if this will go with engine. We know we had this double team turntables recorded. You know the be. From the beastie boys on one you know scratches from revere you know had a whole bunch of aaron good you know it was. It was my creation. I really didn't realize what i created back in because it wasn't there wasn't a blueprint for that right like bill rocking over overweight. Beats james brown and things like that but no one really really kind of put orchestration the fifth beethoven had existed but no one was doing it as far as a as a him. Bob context and i remember what i did. I took it to my to my best friend's house on a play form any positive if thrown across the roman told me. It will never work from that moment.

"Inside it. We are in that concert hall. Those words come with me now, the world orchestra is always playing, et cetera. That's a quote from our Murray shafer. The R stands for Raymond, by the way, schaefer was an acoustic ecologist that someone who studies the relationship between humans and the environment through sound. You may not recognize schaefer's name, but if he dig deep enough into the history of a far flung corner of documentary radio, where sound art and radio art and composition and acoustic ecology converge, you'll discover schaefer. He was a seminal figure, truly groundbreaking. His work put the field of acoustic ecology on the map. Now look, I'm not at all an acoustic ecologist, but schaefer's work cracked open my ears. I move through the world ears forward in part because of schaefer's recordings and writings. So I was saddened to learn he passed away recently. Hildegard wester camp worked with schaefer and knew him for many decades. When we go to concert and we hear, we hear a concert where full of attention, we go for the purpose of listening and we go for the purpose of enjoyment and critique analysis, conversations afterwards, cultural, engagement. He's asking for that kind of engagement with a soundscape. He's saying, let's sit down and listen to the world in that same attentive way because we really have to. Schaefer and hildegard say we really have to listen because of the situation we're in, with climate change, extinctions, environmental degradation. In fact, hildegard goes so far as to say in these times, listening is a revolutionary act. But we'll get to that. From PRX and transom. This is how sound. The backstory to great audio storytelling. Though, on this episode, it's more about listening than storytelling as hildegard wester camp and I marked the passing of our Maurice schaefer. We'll focus in particular on his pioneering work in acoustic ecology..

"Guess this is this is partly personal. But I have a feeling that I'm not the only one who is interested in this story. So I'll share it with my fellow fans of rock music. And especially back when I was really, you know, getting into it back in the seventies. And I've been I've been a radio listener as a kid from Cali. I can't remember 56 years old, uh, listen to a lot of great music of big fan of top 40 radio back in the late sixties. The Motown sound. Then, as we got in the early seventies, I got my little transistor radio and got into more of the Beatles. The Eagles as they came on in the mid late seventies, especially but also, uh, Kearney and wings and triumph and yellow yellow was probably one of my favorites. But this band also held the spot. The band's Kansas. You probably remember this song dust in the wind, Give a listen to this violent solar. Really quick man who did that Robby Steinhardt. The original violinist for Kansas, Also, a co lead vocalists actually sings Believe vocal on this song as well. Backup vocal Well, we lost Robbie over the weekend, he died from acute pancreatitis. The founding member of the band and a rarity. I mean, a violin player in a rock band. How did that all come about? My parents asked me to play the violin, I guess made me play as of island would be more accurate. I was the first chair in my high school orchestra. My junior high school orchestra in my grade school orchestra. Remember when Philly heart call me and he said, I heard you play and I wanted to find out if you wanted to get together and form a band. I remember being in Lawrence, Kansas and seeing him playing and singing, and I just thought that is a guy that I need to be in a band with. I've never seen anybody else like that guy. I've never heard anybody play like that guy and I've never heard anybody sing that way, Robbie said. Do you guys have a tape? So I sent him a reel to reel and he called back. He said. Awesome. I'm in that piece Audio from the documentary Kansas Miracles out of nowhere. Robby Steinhardt was unusual. He played the violin. Yeah, we have fiddle players. But this guy was a true classical violin player in a rock band and just totally helped to, you know to to forge a new sound, of course. As we mentioned dust in the wind, but carry on my wayward son, another favorite of theirs that I love playing the game tonight like that one as well point of no return. So the list goes on and on just some great music. Romney Robby Steinhardt dead at the age of 71 from pancreatitis, So it's a little sad news there for you, and I'm like I say, partly personal.

"orchestra" Discussed on Inquisikids Daily

"Play. Live music what is an orchestra anyway. Is it different from band today. We will learn all about orchestras from the beginning of human civilization. People have made music together. They use drums to beat gourds to shake horns to blow and later instruments made with strings to pluck until the sixteen hundreds people made music with whatever musicians and instruments were available. Abandoned players might have a drummer a horn and a violin or three drummers a flute and guitar but in the seventeenth century composers people who write music started writing music for groups that included specific numbers of instrumentalists in four sections in a modern western orchestra. The four sections of instruments are strings winds brass and percussion stringed instruments like the violin viola. Cello and string bass are played by plucking the strings or drawing a bow across them to make the strings vibrate every string on. Each instrument is tuned to a different musical note. The woodwind instruments the flute clarinet oboe and bassoon are made of hollow tubes players. Use a wooden read or an open mouthpiece to blow air through holes along the tube can be open or closed to change the notes being played. The brass instruments are made of metal the trumpet trombone and tuba all have a cup shaped mouthpiece that the player blows into the instruments have valves or slides to open and close that change. The notes being played the last section is percussion. These instruments like drums and xylophones. All have to be hit or shake it to make sounds. There are usually several types of drums in the percussion section small drums make higher. Pitched sounds while the low sounds are made by the large tiffany. Drums and orchestra may also include a piano organ. If a certain piece of music calls for an instrument that isn't part of the orchestra like an electric guitar or saxophone they may have to be included to the most important person in the orchestra is the conductor. Thinking doctor is the man or woman who is the leader. They are the one who stands in front waving the baton. The conductor controls the tempo or speed of the music. They also control the dynamics how loud or soft music is played how long the pases are conductors use standard hand movements facial expressions and signals to tell the orchestra how to interpret the music judah music sound like it's flowing or like it's marching. Are we getting louder or getting quieter along with the standard signals. Each conductor has their own body language. That the musicians learn to watch for a conductor will make eye contact with different sections at different times and they will tell. The players went to stop and start playing through the music. Some orchestras are for musicians. Who are still learning to play. Most schools have orchestras and students. Learn to read music and play together. They learn how to watch and listen to the conductor. And how to play the way. They are asked professional. Orchestras are for musicians. Who have a bachelor's or master's degree in music performance and play music as their job. Many people audition try out to play in these orchestras and lots of people pay to see them. Play either with an opera or another singing group or with special soloists or just as an orchestra orchestra. Music is sometimes named in a way that tells you what kind of music it is. Some pieces of music like vivaldi's four seasons just have creative names that do not tell you what to expect but some like hayden symphony number one. Oh four tells you that this will be a symphony and that's a piece of music that has three or more movements like a book with three or more chapters. We know that box violin concerto in e major will be a concerto. That's a soloist. Or a few solo players accompanied by an orchestra e. Major is the musical key. It will be played in a key. Is the group of notes or pitches that are the basis for a piece of music. The main pitches are all from a particular scale which will have the same name as the key. There is so much to learn and enjoy about music. Maybe you can listen to an orchestra. Play something today. I put a lincoln the episode notes to one of my favorite orchestra pieces..

Use Your Voice to Captivate the Room With Tracy Goodwin

"Tracy you use the term psychology of the voice. Can you share with us. What you mean by this yes. Psychology of the voice is the title that i gave the methodology around voice that i created over thirty years of research and study and listening to voice what i discovered and i i actually started this discovery through dialects so the concept of psychology of the voice is that internally the subconscious is actually calling the shots on how we use our voice. Yes we have vocal cords. Yes air hits them. All of that is real but what my research showed me. Starting all the way back to dialects is that the sub-conscious is trying to protect the heart sense of belonging fitting in the subconscious. Trying to protect the heart. The voice is the orchestra the heart. The subconscious is taking in dialogue experiences and filtering it and telling the muscle memory the muscles how we use our voice what to do. So let's say let me give you an example and and the and the drivers and their stories around this and we can talk about that but the first thing that happens is before we're five years old. Somebody says something. Like hey peter you're too loud and your subconscious says or could be anything. It could be your too quiet. You talk too much. My generation was children are to be seen and not heard right. So just sit there and be pretty tracy right or whatever it was my subconscious took that in and said okay. We've got to keep her safe. That means we need to get her talking in a quiet voice.

"Orchestra you might have heard of the Chicago Sinfonietta. But what about the Chicago Philharmonic Orchestra? 1979, a group of musicians from the Lyric Opera wanted to play music together outside of the opera house, and so orchestra, Illinois was born over the decades, the name has changed. But the idea of a diverse community of musicians reaching out and playing to a diverse audience hasn't changed. This week, The Chicago Philharmonic Orchestra gets a new leader when Terrell M. Johnson takes over as executive director, and Terrell Johnson joins us now. Hi. Welcome to reset. Hi. Thank you for having me great to be here. So tell us a little bit about yourself. First of all, congratulations to you, and I want to hear more about how you got started in music. Yes, thank you. So I I got started to music about the age of seven started on piano and Kind of, you know, never looked back from there. Uh, we definitely had I did. I didn't live in a household performers, but I definitely lived in a household of enthusiasts. Um, my mother. Absolutely love music and played, you know, she still played music consulate in the house. I mean, I She wore out the Delfonics and Houston and Sam Cooke. Sounds like my house like, Yeah, well through the big hit. You, um you also you have a bachelor's and a graduate degree in performance. So what brought you to Chicago after school? Um, opportunity and you know, it's a wonderful city. My my wife was was in Chicago for for school for optometry school, and it was just really Great place to be. And I ended up teaching in Chicago. I had a studio about 45 students and I, you know, worked in Bucktown, as well as throughout the city, working with the Chicago High School for the arts and just kind of having that rigorous schedule that the young entrepreneurs Yeah. Straight out of grad school and From there, I moved, Um, the Miami Beach and I spent some time at the New World Symphony for about six years. And now I'm just thrilled to be coming back to Chicago and joining us shadow for the harmonic. So you taught for a while. Your resume shows that you really dove into the marketing and management side. Of things Do you miss playing? Oh, I I still play every day and actually, I was I was sitting at the piano minutes before before this conversation. Really? Absolutely. Absolutely. You have to stay sharp and you know I That's something I'll never stop. When you first came here to Chicago. What was your impression of the orchestra music scene here? Um, that's a great question. I think the music scene in Chicago is tremendous. There's so many great ensembles and organizations, I think, um at times I noticed The lack of opportunity. I think I think what's really terrific is the shift that I have noticed in the past. No. Several years and, uh, you know the way organizations are programming, more diverse music, their their, you know, championing diverse support voices and being more inclusive and I think that's so essential. Our art form. So that's something that's really encouraging because you know, 10 12 years ago living in Chicago, I think that was something that Was was was not quite there. I think we're on the correct path. And you know my mission and reading and serving the tribal philharmonic is to continue that path. Uh, And, you know, championing diverse voices and, uh, doing that through our programming and through the ways we engage with our community, So we're clear, Terrell. What exactly? Is the difference between a Philharmonic in a symphony. That's a great question. Well, um one of the big things I do want to say about Chicago Philharmonic is Our the way we are governed. And traditionally, the United States organizations have a board. That board is not governed by the musicians in the orchestra and something so unique to the Philharmonic. Is that we are self governed, so our board majority are musicians in the ensemble. And I think that's something that It's so unique in the U. S in particular, and it makes the struggles of harmonic and incredibly personal organization. In terms of Programming and how how we're able to kind of turn on a dime. I think that the B the governance model of or other organizations can make that little bit more of a challenge. I think that's something that's so unique and so special to Just trying to fill so one of the huge differences than between, say, the CSO and the Chicago Philharmonic, the CSOs musicians, their employees right and the and the musicians in the Philharmonic. Actually run and program. The organization. Is that right? Correct. In essence, Yes, we are, Um, since their self governing the musicians have committees for several aspects of the organization, so they're making a direct impact on the decisions. For the direction of the Chicago Phil. Whereas and other organizations like here, so, um, those musicians don't have as much flexibility and decision making as as we do. This is reset. I'm Sasha and Simon's. If you're just tuning in, that is Terrell Johnson. He is the new executive director of the Chicago Philharmonic. The Philharmonic kicks off the 2021 2022 season today. With a streaming concert. That's featuring a new collection of songs that celebrate African American history and honor victims of injustice as well. Um, throw. Why did you Decided to apply for this job. What is it about this particular organization? I this particular organization and the reason why I applied for this job. I have always wanted to serve and lead and I was looking for organization that Was Had equity quality. Um At the forefront. Of their programming and the decisions in the past of the organization, So I was looking for an organization that wanted to be innovative. That wanted to make sure that The communities that they're residing or at the Very utmost importance and their programming in the decision making of the organization and, um, these things that so closely aligned With me in the Chicago Philharmonic. That I it was this was a dream opportunity. I'm just thrilled to be leading be taking over. So, uh, you know, I think this was just a really terrific match and I'm so excited to serve. As a jump in this role and to pick up the great work of my predecessor, Donna Milanovic, have done in terms of programming in terms of, uh, the direction of you know, for the past 10 years. Yeah, we're and we're excited to have you at when the When the news broke about a month or so ago. We were like, Okay, got to get him on the program. Let's just make it happen.

Mr brownstein welcome to the show. Thank you you have conducted major orchestras all around the world. And you are on a trajectory to being a lead conductor when you disclosed your diagnosis of bipolar disorder. And then you were shunned by the classical music community. Was this the experience that caused you to start me too. Well it wasn't like. I decided to start me too. I got basically fired from a job. Because of my mentally ill. I knew that i would never get up conducting chop again But it wasn't like a decision. It's just i felt that i run out of options So i had to create a new option which was to make my own of of people like me. And i guess it was not as though there was a formal launch.

That's sort of where the sir lightbulb went off my head said you know this is really important stuff. And it's sort of the fourth dimension of health which is time and understanding that you know we have rhythms in nature. We have the rising of the sun in the setting of the sun and then the lunar cycles and we have the the months in the seasons in the year so it only makes sense that our body has its own cycles and own seasons and understanding that We have these internal clocks and we have jeans. They're called clock genes and they have to synchronize Just like an orchestra got a lot of different pieces You're talking earlier in a podcast. About how many different chemical reactions are going on the body. You have chemicals being made you have chemicals being broken down.

If you're a musician for a major orchestra you can easily make over one hundred thousand dollars per year in two thousand fifteen. The los angeles philharmonic offered a base salary for musicians of one hundred and fifty three thousand four hundred dollars concert masters for some orchestras can make many hundreds of thousands of dollars per year. Top conductors can make millions or even tens of millions of dollars per year. However most orchestras are not major orchestras. There are many more mid or lower level. Orchestras where musicians. don't earn. Nearly as much in fact in many of them. The musicians are only part time performers. Their regular jobs might be teaching music or performing for weddings. You might be wondering what about vocalists. Orchestras usually don't have vocals. If there's a need for a soloist. They'll usually bring someone in if the performing a piece. That has a part for a chorus. Like beethoven's ninth symphony. They will usually work with another group for the performance. Operas are totally different. Beasts in opera company would be a totally separate organization from an orchestra they might share musicians as an opera will usually have your performances and require fewer musicians.

"So if we look at it by section we notice. There is a huge imbalance between them eighty-one string instruments. Nineteen woodwinds fifteen brass and just five percussionists. And they also have a single harpist on their roster. Why are there more than twice. As many stringed instruments as there are everything else combined the answer is shockingly simple and it also explains why everyone is seated where they are in an orchestra volume. The loudest instruments are the ones that require the fewest people. That's why are so few percussionist and breast instruments in an orchestra and it's why they're also located in the back of the orchestra string instruments especially violins can only produce so much sound. That's why they're position closest to the conductor in the audience and why there are so many of them. You might be wondering. Where does the piano fit into this well. An orchestra may have a pianist on her. It will usually bring in a solo pianist for performances. That require a piano likewise they will sometimes bring in soloist for other instruments as well. Moore's odroid for ticket sales than anything else anyone on their roster certainly play any solo part if they were asked to do so. An orchestra is organized in a couple of different ways. Each section will usually have a principal. Or i share. That person is responsible for leading the section as walls performing any solos which might be required. The principal first violinists has a special position in any orchestra. They're known as the concert master or concert mistress. They are the lead musician in most orchestras. Their primary job is to make sure that everyone is in tune before concert starts. The lead oboe west is the person who provides the note that everyone has to be in tune with and this is mostly just to tradition. The conductor is the leader of every orchestra. The most obvious thing that conductor does is keep the tempo that's what all the hand waving is four during a concert. Originally conductors used a giant staff that they would pound to keep time. Legend holds at one conductor in sixteen eighty seven gene petits. Louis slammed his staff on his foot. He developed gangrene and then died. The conductor also has to communicate to the orchestra how they want a piece to be played not just the tempo but what parts might be played. Louder or given. More emphasis are decisions of the conductor..

"As with most subjects. It's necessary to define what you're talking about before you start getting into it so with that. What's an orchestra. An orchestra is a group of musicians. Who play together. that's it. That's what orchestras the term orchestra to refer to a collection. A musician didn't begin. Until the late seventeenth century in france and italy prior to that an orchestra in latin length the seating section of an arena distinguish people in the vip section. You might be thinking that. There's more to it for example orchestras ten ever large number of people. But that isn't necessarily the case you can have a chamber orchestra which only has as few as four people does. The type of instrument used determine if something is an orchestra again not really a rock band. Someone that plays the violin and an orchestra might have someone that plays guitar. Anything used in a band can be used in an orchestra and vice versa. Plus their bands like marching bands. Which have lots of people in them like an orchestra and instruments which are closer to an orchestra. So if you want to get technical. A band and an orchestra are pretty much synonymous when it comes to music. So to that extent. Electric light orchestra really is an orchestra. However in our everyday use of the word. If you say you're going to see the orchestra you don't mean you're going to go to a bar on friday night to watch one of your friends play. If you say you're going to the orchestra you're probably going to something that calls itself a symphony orchestra okay. So what's a symphony. A symphony is simply a long form piece of music to compare it to literature.

I'm going to stop rambling now I've had a great time and I hope you have a great time listening to this episode with Gary Lewis. Well Maestro Gary Lewis. Thanks so much for for joining us today. It's my pleasure. Thanks for having me. Would you give our listeners a brief overview of who you are and what you do? Academic either Colorado Boulder a regular pinstripes studies they're. Ending my twelfth year on the back of the at Z.. Album. Also fortunate to be abusive records number in that Melissa Texas. And I also am but not for the Symphony Orchestra in the greater youth. System so So kind of a foot in each of those oils is really grateful. And where did you you? You know if we've known each other for a couple years now but I don't know anything about your your studied history, what you where you were before boulder, could you just overview that is well? In my my re to the orchestra podium. This is research that US and free unusual. I think. I was a undergraduate music education major looking to be the best facebook direct rocket Oslo be I opted at the undergraduate go directly into graduate school and the. So, I was a win nothing. Major is a master student. Networking still looking to the is full director and then where my colleague Sue Graduated Your Roommate had knew Austin Texas was teaching them to three small colleges there. He connected me with John put well, who was the record Chris. University. Retired his record has Michigan State University. He he was looking for another low brass studio listless. The last thing I ever expect you to do. But I I wrote down there. Once a week thought low brass and that turned into a full time job at Eaton's associate and. Essentially walked into accountable band. Remain there for three years and he has John Lewis. KINDA NEAT to of Michigan. World of Prostate Clare and Larry rackliff than Bob Reynolds and those folks listen that's hot in Michigan. So I attended several workshops during those years and got to know Bob Ross spot the know my work and so i. That you look by his associates I was on the initiative for years recipes, a bank doctor who still Meyer was the record working Stroz at them so I just adopted him as a mental. Much classes took the with him. grew more in those years than I ever. into the single with seminars auditor summers who stop was still running. Fairmont to school, and then decided that needed to get some of the responsibilities that there. So they can grant's Ohio State? University for three years of all places to go for Michigan Right. And then and then the orchestra position is continuing conduct orchestras in the summers and at different festivals and such. So my original mentor. Texas. Tech. Where the my master's degree was interested in bringing me back to leave Yorkshire grandson was really fortunate to get bad job. We also involved a really active in high quality opera program. So for ten years conducted, Opera Orchestra Texas Tech during those years became associated with Midland Odessa symphony as their music in. Which I continued to do to this day. Now I mentioned I'm in my and she twelfth year on the faculty at Cu Boulder. A midland. Odessa. What like what level group is that it's a two year I can't remember what the tier is at. Well over Megan dollar of budget annual budget in the are really fine orchestra. We have a six-year-old a performing arts center, which is just beautiful world class. Acoustics and the so crowded that orchestra and and what they do and. I'm so proud Tom. A to the associated with them. Yeah. So it's like one one concert a month basically yeah. Basically cycle month plus cracker plus Scibelli. That that SORTA stuff. Yeah. Yeah. And How how closely did you work with Gustav Meyer while I was his colleague but I like I said. I just adopted him as a mentor. Me Not literally went to his classes to seminar class I took video to him A. Talked to him. He he gave me most importantly gave me opportunities to conduct the orchestra on at least at least once a year. So that was really important for my. For my growth and like I mentioned I I attended. Tanglewood for a couple of weeks a couple of summers as an auditor in the. Program air at which he was leading and So he He I just meant everything to me as far as conducting, concerned and learning, burning how to get better at this heart. What are some of the the savings or lasting lessons that he other teachers had? Well, his his whole. Overarching philosophy was to I think a mushroom stated in East terms that was to facilitate the orchestra to play better together. and so the way you move the way you listen. All that either contributes to that and facilitates the orchestra to play better together or it makes it more difficult for them So the economy movements of a book. From posture to at its body attitude to. The. The. Strength and veracity of the beat you know all those things recipes Strengthen beach all that. It was. Really informative remember used to say often death to to beat. which is look you know any any always his ideas about of beets and and. not stopping the motion, not stopping the all those things have been just by changes for me now. Harsh of the ways that you can that you can facilitate that. Orchestra playing. First of all by not dictating when they when they play. So it's it's a matter of trusting them, and that's something that I've become more and more of. Evangelistic about. I think at the essence of conducting is trust and if we trust the ensemble to do the things that they can do other than that frees up to. Other. Don't want my fabulous colleagues initiate Liz Reynolds and. Was Breath Rabanne's and saying tried to do only the things that only you can do. Now he was talking about administrative things Balat. So trying to delegate, you know the duties which are part of all of our jobs, but I think it's equally applicable. Women are on the podium to try to do only the things that only we can do, which is to provide an overarching station to be able to heater. Quarterly what some since accuracy and balance? And then. We yield to the musicians to fight to exactly win that sound star. And for the ongoing pulse. and. If we can figure out how to not step on their toes. And Free them to to do that I think it really finances the way they play. I'm always grateful when somebody's says something like, Hey, you really let them play or I noticed how you let them play. And I don't. I. Don't think that's an indictment of a lack of musical leadership. I think it's. An appreciation for the fact that it's up to the group Minnow. In creating a chamber music setting for them to interact, that's the weight rate orchestras play well, together way chamber certainly, chamber ensembles do. Absence of the conductors so Those are some of the things that were at the center of Happy Kiss Philosophy in this philosophy of teaching. Yeah and you do you take that. Instill, and how do you apply differently to your professional versus your educational orchestras? Absolutely, I think I, think we have to train. Our education workers throws. To do that but I think it's a worthy goal they're not going to do it the first time. It's not one of play together. Our or our Middle School Orchestra Orchestras Not GonNa? Play. You can't just say, okay, we'll get you know and expect it to be great. We have to teach them. How to play together and teach them of the over internal pulse we have to teach them how to listen to the pulse when it sin the Jevon. Basis organism, the Tiffany sner wrong or so as a matter of directing, they're listening and equipping with the skills to succeed I mean our whole our whole duty is. Educators. is to make ourselves obsolete. To to equip our students with the skills that they need to transcend what it is, we're doing with them. And to go on to become better musicians and so the more we hover over them with this. Beat you know all the time. The more we're actually stifling their you're wealthy to grow. And how do you? How do you teach that to the groups besides just awareness of what to listen to while I think it is awareness most mostly I teach them. And I think it's important for us to think about as conductors that.

"Just I. Just I never work on technique that's for me I think that. If you have a strong standard technique the you can probably do fine. It's what you need to do spent hours and I I spent hours every day is studying knowing the score so much having a idea a really concrete idea of what it is you WanNa do in rehearsal where you want to get a from each rehearsal from ADP and how you're going to get there and the sound that you want and the quality of what it is that you're doing the tempo. Field. So so when I went to Savannah Orchestra had never worked with and we played for really different pieces. I had a very concrete idea of how each piece patient should go and and so it's only when you get there and you start working with them that you realize what it is that you need to do, and that's where you need to. You know two and a half hour or so you're just in that high gear of what affects what not affects. Oh, they'll get back tomorrow and and just start doing your work and that takes so so much time to learn I. Think when you're when you're a young conductor, it's it's about your technique in and then you think, well, what am I going to say it good No. I mean if it's so good, how do you stop and you just to say things because you don't know really you know and it's it's scary and it takes a long time I think to learn how to rehearse and I think that's probably the hardest part, and by the time you get to the performance you work is pretty much done. You know you've you've done it and now you're just out there they know what to do and they've got to pull it out and you have to inspire them to do Klay the best that they can, but it's up you know or so lucky to conductors because our lives are so filled with with such incredible learning everyday you know whether it's whether it's history or or religion or different cultures whatever. So we're just luck exit never ends and we're never like done. It's not like. Okay. I know how to do this it's not like that. I like that and the older you get the more you realize how much you really don't know you know A. Not Music touches just absolutely every facet of life in history and religion and literature, and poetry and art and. History and just just absolutely everything. There's there's never enough life or for how much music there is to do. Exactly and you know if you're playing a piece. You need to know all that about that piece. You know I mean, it's. It's so important to know your stuff and I listen to your grave podcast where. It was all about what you need to know as a conductor was basic, but it was fantastic and and it's so true. You know you have to have great ears and you have great technique you have to have great technique. But once you have that great technique, you have it do you have to practice it every day? It's I don't think it's like being a minimalist where if you have great technique and that's you, you definitely need to learn that right away. You need to learn all your beat patterns in every kind of possible musical expression that you can. That's really really important. But once you learn that you have that and then it becomes muscle memory I think I mean I think that that you're you know how to conduct a Llegado a you know how beautiful sports on and you know had a Q. and you know how to separate your hands. So you're not marrying doing the same thing. You learn all that that you can learn pretty quickly over time you know in the beginning, but but to be a great musician to have great ears to learn about people, you need to know your, you need to know your people. You know if you're if you'RE MR comes in and they're in a really bad mood for whatever reason, maybe the contract negotiations aren't going. Wow or maybe day are on the last day before a much needed. The whatever it is, you need to be aware of that be sensitive to that. You know, but it doesn't mean you.

"But I. Please enjoy this interview with. Rodrick cops. And then yeah, and so one of the things we want to talk about a lot was moving from that assistance. And now you know now your guest conducting you're you're definitely? Established You know a great career from our perspective. Could you talk about the the transition from from assistance into into guests. Is is is very tricky topic because. I believe that everyone's. Journey as a collectors is very different. My Journey, obviously, I started with the NEOM side orchestra with Alabama MSN's nghien escaping. To to to learn in a sort of environment, that's not too high profile on to work with a professional orchestra and to. Get from Repertoire Matt. Bell and I also let the Youth Orchestra which allow me to learn about what doesn't work with what? With the players are had A. Particular Repertoire. And a couple obviously when you become a conductor of. A orchestra. A somewhat well known orchestrate lease, even in a region that gets press seconds, press release, and and you have to work to help circulate baton and do great work. Can people tall in Nokia get a couple engagements that start to come out from small resources around that level? Obviously winning a addition with the major orchestras, especially a top ten on. The Minnesota Orchestra that that really. Get more and more attention nationally and. Internationally, and so does why. In our system A. In the American. System where you have. This this process of becoming a stack conduct on system conductor, which is not usually common in in Europe. Is Very beneficial for a young conductors try to. Get a position with a a major orchestra because that can open up. A, pariah, doors. Also when I was? GROWING UP I suppose. In a looking at the type of trajectory, other conductors made especially. Conductors that were just a generation ahead of me when I. Say Generation I mean. We talk about three to four years a class ahead of me in terms of school. We would have went to school together. And a number of them went to the Aspen Music Festival and studied with David Zimin. And then went on to. Work with A. Major Orchestra I that I felt that that was very important. Next step for me was to go to ask. And to work bear that would open up more doors and I think that was their helpful, because it was intense or chess show training with with Robert, Spano. Obviously, you're exposed to a high level of musicians and soulless guest. Conductors come through in. An opportunity to religious. Hone your craft and really work on becoming a better. Conductor and musician. And I think that helped prepare me for the next level. When. I talked about conductors, having their own journey in their own paths, but that's not to say that is the path to. Because for everyone because they're young doctors who are? Who are much more skilled in other areas than? Just comes faster for certain. People out there now for. Win Their first major job with the the big orchestra at in their twenties, or they feel the need not to do in this all together and and so therefore you have to sort of. Chart Your own path Guest conducting if you do good work in. To. To. To put yourself out there and Just, keep your head to the ground I think the the the guest engagements will come. But. It is tricky in. We can continue to talk about that I suppose. Where the where the early guest engagements come from. What was it that got your that got your foot in the door in that way. Was Interesting.

"Have to figure you already know who we are. So that's Toro Mata over there. Welcome back and if you haven't seen the website in a little while head on over to stand partners for Life Dot Com got got a bit of a new look and as befits the new year. Twenty twenty episodes of stand partners for life there. You can make sure you're subscribed on I tunes on on the Ghoul podcasts. However you get podcasts? Today we are we talking about the anonymous nature of orchestra playing and this actually came up recently so I teach the violin. Orchestral Rep quasi coburn. Now I got a really good question just today actually. What was that question the prompt no you know they asked? They said we have a friend who that that's always kind of a tip off. They said we have a friend who says that he would never play an orchestra. Because you would lose your artistic identity you'd become anonymous first of all. I love how you can't really talk about. ORCAS throats kind of like how kids learn about the birds and the bees on the playground like playground wisdom. You can't talk about well. I just feel like there's not a constant dialogue right about orchestra playing. You have to kind of ask in secret like I have a friend who says this is how we will sure and I mean we all know why that is. It's like the vast majority of working musicians Pianist obviously but our that were out there nor stras not being soloists Chamber Timorese Necessarily right when you're in school the ideal is not to play in an orchestra. Riots as like a weird version of your expectations and your training training or something like you're supposed to do something not anonymous quote unquote better right and well. That's what we're going to talk about. But I will say you know the folks in my class Coburn. I love the attitude. And they're asking because they really WanNa know and I honestly do believe they have a friend who who said this so they asked and I told them when they said. Is it true that when you join the orchestra you can become anonymous. And I said absolutely I mean if you just joined the orchestra and that's all the playing you do. You will very quickly lose the ability to even if it's not healing healing playing It has tapped to bust out of that rat. Yeah so we thought that we would call this episode Orchestra Orchestra players anonymous and obviously were having a little fun with the twelve step programs a and we should say that we've had friends and colleagues who who have struggled with addiction and found these programs very helpful so while not at all demeaning these particular programs uh-huh I think we were drawn to the fact that they constantly talk about this higher power and you know an orchestra there can really only only be one higher power. Who's WHO's the higher power? We really playing along today. We'll obviously the conductor. That's you know rules our lives in orchestra. Before I took my first job in orchestra did have a friend who had played a lot of chamber ambridge music with and they said you know. How can you do this? How can you join in orchestra? And they actually use the word anonymous. They said you were going to become anonymous. You'RE GONNA lose every part of you. That's you lose all your musical decision-making interesting. I never thought about that. Maybe I should have. You never got the warning no. I'm sure it's because the people interacted with thought. This is probably the best I can do. We're not gonNA urine heard. We're probably GONNA you know we'll tell her. This is your laid. She can really fired. Yeah you're going to be lucky to remain anonymous lady but I I did get that warning I really you know everything in meat cried out against those like I will not. You'll see and sometime in that very first season Zenden this was in the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra so not even a giant machine but a Chamber Orchestra and I still felt who am I what am I doing. Do I still sound like Nathan eighth and when I play or is the transformation complete. It's possible that the my style playing it's always been so plan lamb or something that like maybe maybe people that sound belongs in an orchestra. You mean like a certain people's voices kind of sound like newscasters. Yeah Yeah like you. You're not gonNA be Laurence Olivier. You're going to be like the weather guy. So what they heard me. Okay whether guy. Okay I I can say I've heard you play on the very recent side. Nothing generic about you. I think I think I have a good sense of how things are quote unquote supposed to whatever that's good for orchestra. Probably you know good for -Chestra but you could easily easily see how it could happen right. I mean now happened obviously Yeah I mean. That's that's why people warned. And that's why they're the rumors schoolyard. Schoolyard rumors about six. You'RE GONNA lose how you plan. Think you'RE GONNA lose recognition. That's certainly a huge deal. You'RE GONNA start being comfortable being anonymous in you're not gonNA want to seek recognition but your ego will still monitor what happened that right so for the purpose of of this episode as we rewrite the twelve steps. I think we've got to put ourselves in the shoes of someone who let's say we have to. We have to imagine more someone that welcomes that they want to become anonymous. They want to just blend in fit in and not not have to make any musical decisions anymore. So we're going to work after a very good advertisement for joining Orchestra Picture. I mean you know I think we can. We have always resisted this even so in some of our darker moments. I think we might crave embrace the anonymous aspect. But I think in this episode. We're going to pretend that. Were One of those folks that just wants to become anonymous forever. Yeah and so these would be the twelve steps to do it okay. I'll play along so the twelve steps of orchestra players anonymous and the the first one is we admitted we were powerless over our musical decisions and that our musical lives have become unmanageable right. So that's the first step on every written that and because I just imagine I mean like we were saying you you you're playing string quartets. You're playing in smaller groups and you're constantly having conflict with other people and they're telling you that you you don't phrase clearly need to play more here here on Ryan you're burdened with these decisions that you had to contribute right because you've got to argue against that or you've got to say no I disagree or no no. I'd like to play at shorter. And here's why and maybe you just get tired of that. It's become unmanageable from what I seem like people get tired of that. Sure certainly Some people might than if if that happened and all that stress became unmanageable than you would admit that you're powerless over all these musical decisions that you have to make all right. Well that's step one you would. If if you're GONNA assume this this character in the new you would have to admit that step two is we came to believe the power greater than ourselves could restore us to musical sanity. Yeah got got their power greater than yourself a conductor. I think it was just like the idea that you know. Like if you join the orchestra you can serve like you're you're you're just a shareholder but near still receiving dividends. Okay so it's more like like the power greater than yourself is the orchestra of the collective. Okay and I like that idea. I think when I was looking around for what I was going to do my life I thought well that's the second to be all the pressure won't be on. I mean all the glory won't be mine either but you know it'll be sort of a fair trade okay because it's about to get more personal more singular in the next rule not sure that higher power can still be. The Whole Orchestra made a decision to turn our will and our musical lives over to the care of of the original rule. It's God as we him. I think it's pretty clear it's a single. I think all signs are pointing to a conductor. I still think you. Can you can apply the orchestra. And in any case. Do you have to make a decision to turn your musical will and life over to that higher power as you understand it still or him and most conductors at this point Dr him although we do see more and more female conductors at the feeling get in trouble. Get in trouble trouble for saying that we see more female conductors for saying that mostly there have been overwhelmingly male and I mean. Most people think it's Kinda funny that these original rules always talk about him anyway. This is interesting because step four made a searching and fearless louis moral inventory of ourselves. Would you call that part of the audition process. Really feel like you kind of have to do that when you're auditioning thing. Yeah searching and fearless moral inventory. That's pretty much because you've talked about many times how you really have to come to terms with with what your strengths and weaknesses are. Yeah not a depressing way though. I think that you get a chance to show off your good side but for the purposes of Of the shirts also daily taking inventory of how things are going. I think overall this is supposed to be depressing either. I mean it's just it's truth time. Yeah I mean sure. Getting getting job is true. Time so let. Let's say you're looking at your weaknesses. I mean what does that mean in terms of the audition. Yeah Yeah you really are trying to disguise them. I'm not sure that works for this particular analogy. It doesn't work because the thing you're supposed to do in the twelve step program is high. That's the whole basis of insecurities Things you feel that your squirreling away from the light of could you really hide who you are as a player. Yes and we've seen it. Uh No names we seen it. It's anonymous maybe we should do Traditions well this is really more of a whole life. No musical lifetime process but no I mean that that also would be well so you say you can hide it and not Asian. Yeah Okay you you know you're not like refusing to play things doesn't work but you can really look out out.
