During my studies at Academy we also had conducting class which was manly based on choral conducting, since the majority of slovenian music culture is basically choir singing and wind-brass bands. Ever since medical student's choir persuaded my hidden and feared wish to be a conductor I have also tried myself in this role as well, so I have to say that by now I am quite experienced conductor, but don't want to compare myself to anyone else, because there are sooooo many wonderful conducters in this world that I know I will never beat and am gratefull to have a chance to work with them and thank God, they exist to make the best musical instrument ever invented-THE VOICE-sound as it deserve. I really love choir singing and every aspect of music where voice is included. I think voice is the ultimate instrument when working properly and that everybody should have a chance to experience that.
Nevertheless the subject, here is a video that I have found on YouTube that made me laugh. It's about things that choral conductors say and do during practices and have to admit, some really are true-that's based on what I've experienced, heard and seen so far :)
Hope it mades your day as it did my! Enjoy watching!
