Orchestral Conductor - Hiring a conductor
For larger scale projects that demand a bigger string section or full orchestra, a conductor can help to effectively co-ordinate the instruments and ensure an efficient use of studio time. With careful study of the score, a orchestral conductor can bring out the more expressive qualities in the music and enhance the dramatic effect of an ensemble.
