Osmo Vänskä /// Music Director

Common Chords: Willmar

Conducting 101

Sarah Hicks

At a luncheon held Wednesday afternoon, conductor Sarah Hicks presented the Art of Conducting for members of nine of Willmar’s professional service organizations.  Aided by members of the Minnesota Orchestra String Quartet, she illustrated the parallels between effective, dynamic leadership in a business context and in music.

Attendees received a crash course in conducting basics through the course of the presentation, and were later invited to try their hand at leading the ensemble in a performance of Mozart’s Eine kleine Nachtmusik.
