Mark Lansom


Here's a list of most of the pieces I've conducted in performance. There's a similar sized list of pieces that I've conducted as rehearsal conductor for others as well but I decided not to include those here. Please look beyond 'A' as I have conducted some substantial works, and more than just Leroy Anderson! I have however gained a favourable reputation recently for light music concerts. The majority of my conducting to date has been with amateur societies and youth ensembles, meaning I've developed as a problem solver for ensemble and a keen ear for wrong notes, as well as of course having a stick technique and interpretive ideas.
