“I learned the raw mechanics of ensemble work and how to methodically build a piece with the musicians as collaborators. This practical aspect was complemented by classes in orchestration, score reading, and musicology, which rounded out my development so that I emerged as a fully professional musician.” —Russell Ger (M.M. ’10, Orchestral Conducting)
