Abstract or Summary

Musical direction of Wintec Song Arranging class of 2018 End Of Year Concert. A public performance of students' final arrangements from the semester 1 paper. The un-themed program, a selection of popular tunes from 1960s - 2018 was devised to offer students the opportunity to hear their arrangements performed live by a small orchestra comprised of piano, guitar, bass and drums, trumpet, alto sax, tenor sax and trombone and a string section of 3 1st violins, 2 second violins, 2 violas and 2 cellos. Prior to this performance the students were only able to hear their work played as a computer-generated audio file (far from ideal) so the concert provided an invaluable 'real world' experience. The performance was devised as a professional experience - the tutor acting as Producer and Musical Director/Conductor, the students becoming arrangers who also prepared their scores and instrumental parts ready for printing and performance within real-time deadlines to emulate a real-world work experience.
