dc.description.abstract The Graduate Project in Orchestral Conducting for Tigran Arakelyan consisted of rehearsals and a performance of Aram Khachaturian's Masquerade Suite with California State University, Northridge Symphony Orchestra. The performance took place at Plaza del Sol Performance Hall on the campus of California State University Northridge on October 5, 2012. Masquerade Suite was chosen after consultation with Dr. John Roscigno, Director of Orchestral Studies at CSUN. The paper will discuss the rehearsal process, relation of the piece to the play, and score study. Prior to studying the score the conductor first listened to a number of recordings with different interpretations. Although most recordings had a similar approach to this piece it was interesting to notice slight differences in tempo and articulation. In preparation the conductor went through the score, analyzing and predicting possible problem areas for the orchestra as well as specific instruments. It is also important to go through the score and practice the physical gestures in sections that might be problematic for the conductor such as ritardando, accelerando, and multiple meter areas. Unlike an instrumentalist the conductor has to be 100% ready for the performance prior to the first rehearsal. There are numerous audio and video recordings therefore the conductor should not have any problems with gestures or interpretation. With all of the score study and preparations done the conductor is able to confidently work with the orchestra knowing all aspects of the music. If members of the orchestra dedicate the time in preparing their respective parts after each rehearsal the orchestra will achieve a positive result. en
