I know that you did not know and that it was a mistake. I don't think people were trying to insult you, or if they were, they were just immature. But it is a very hard job. They also have plenty of behind the scenes work with understanding the score of music. It is much more challenging than you or most people understand. I hope now you realize the challenges. Go to an orchestra concert or a symphony and you can see how cool it is what one person can do!

conductors are the most important people in any orchestra. In addition to their duties during the concert (keeping everyone on time, cuing instruments that have difficult entrances, etc..), they also have a lot of duties during rehearsals. They know the music really well, so they know where to place accents, when certain parts need to come out, and help different parts play together. Anyone who thinks that they don't have a point is ignorant. I don't care if this is just a simple post and not an actual topic of debate, you shouldn't be posting things you don't know anything about.

Okay, my life revolves around music. I play 5 instruments, i also sing, and ive been in several music competitions and concerts, and i performed at the Kennedy Center at D.C., and my mother is a music major and teaches music even till this day, and let me tell you this. An orchestra/band/choir can NEVER function well without a conductor. A conductor isnt just there to keep the beat steady or to conduct us through the dynamics and the accents and accidentals and the other musical details added. A conductor is NEEDED to actually lead the whole group to perform simultaneously and to make sure we all hear one another and follow through with what the conductor says. At times, the conductor may change what is written on a piece, because everyone in the world has a different taste in music, but obviously, not all the 50 or so individuals in an orchestra can play at whichever tempo they prefer, or whichever key to start in, and such. the music would sound like an utter dissapoinment.
