Not Just any Conductor: Butch Morris RIP
Conductor Butch Morris died on January 29. Yet Butch Morris was not just any conductor; he practiced conduction: conducting as an improvisational art. In this NPR interview, he clearly, concisely and patiently explains his art form of conduction. As you would expect, Butch Morris’s charismatic personality informed his singular art. Will conduction as a practicing art form go into eclipse with his departure? We hope not.
