If I decided, okay, well, I think we need more bow so I’m going to have us change bow - the direction that we change&nbsp;the bow - &nbsp;many times. Then suddenly it will sound like I’m singer. Here’s one&nbsp;that I’m breaking the bow as it were.</p><p>LEWIS:&nbsp; There are plenty of nonmusical duties as well.&nbsp; On&nbsp; a typical day, Kim checks in with the conductor before they start rehearsal.</p><p>KIM:&nbsp; If it’s Yannick, go in and say hello, anything Maestro, last second, that you need to talk about? If&nbsp;it's a guest conductor, welcome them to town; do they need a restaurant recommendation? Do they need to know where to buy concert socks? Just anything, please depend on their concertmaster.</p><p>LEWIS:&nbsp; Kim serves as liason between the conductor and members of the Orchestra.&nbsp; He makes public appearances on behalf of the Orchestra, and the music director, if he is not available.</p><p> Mon, 18 Feb 2013 20:30:14 +0000 Susan Lewis 5144 at http://wrti.org The Many Roles of a Concertmaster Why Is The Philadelphia Orchestra Playing Mozart Without A Conductor? http://wrti.org/post/why-philadelphia-orchestra-playing-mozart-without-conductor <p>Listeners may not think about the visuals in an orchestra concert, but body language is an important way in which musicians communicate with one another.
