AbstractOn Saturday, November 19, 2016 at 7:45 p.m. in Room 232 of the University of Arizona Fred Fox School of Music, Grace Kim and I presented an Undergraduate Conducting Recital under the guidance of Dr. Elizabeth Schauer. I conducted four pieces as part of the recital, including "The Hands that First Held Mary’s Child" by Dan Forrest, "Remember" from Two Rossetti Songs by Stephen Chatman, "The Moon is Distant from the Sea" by David N. Childs, and "Sleigh Ride" arranged by Andy Beck. Preparing to conduct these pieces involved a lot of work, much of which I have included in this thesis, including: researching biographies of the composers, arrangers, and poets associated with the pieces; doing literary analyses of the texts of the pieces; musical observations of the pieces; and critical reflection concerning rehearsal plans, cultivating the sound of the ensemble, and putting together the recital.
