My job as musical director in the first place in rehearsal is teaching the cast and orchestra the score and working with the director and choreographer to realise the score in the way we' ve imagined. Then once the show is up and running I' d conduct six shows a week and usually note another show and it' s to work with the singers and the actors to develop their performances and to retain detail which we found in the rehearsal room.
You may not have thought of including a gift to a museum in your will, but the V&A is a charity and legacies form an important source of funding for our work. It is not just the great collectors and the wealthy who leave legacies to the V&A. Legacies of all sizes, large and small, make a real difference to what we can do and your support can help ensure that future generations enjoy the V&A as much as you have.
