This is a great way to spend 20 minutes being uplifted and inspired. Scottish conductor Charles Hazelwood talks about (and conducts) how integral trust is to making music.
And to being in a spiritual community, which is what a really good musical ensemble experience should be.
Now that you’ve watched that, here’s a discussion topic: Maestro Hazelwood certainly has rigorous criteria for who plays in his orchestra. As Ronald Reagan put it, “Trust, but verify”. Do you audition prospective members for your choir or ensemble, or are they open to anyone? If they’re open, how to you establish that trust? And what is the trust based on, musical ability or bringing spiritual gifts?
