Kudos to the Pops orchestra and chorus for staying together!
That’s exactly right, chris. And i must say that that quasi-Gergievian hand tremor on the last note was almost priceless. But did he really need a podium?
But can Dudamel dunk? Maybe if he was on that trampoline.

I think that 1:1 it would wind up like Firkusny vs. Robinson.
I know this performance was done for pure amusement and not serious listening, but, still, it’s a shame the volume on the recording is so low!
Ah-ha! I knew it. Anyone can conduct, right? Just wave your arms to the beat and…viola! I guess the prestige afforded conductors is for their rehearsing skills, community outreach, and general good looks.
Amusing post, Tim. Keep up the good work.
Is your “viola” a typo or a Freudian you-know-what?
Seriously though, virtually anyone can conduct but very few can be good conductors.
Yikes: Freud. Good conductors: agreed.
