Kent Tritle Stars in WIRED “Masterminds” Episode: What Conductors Are Really Doing
Kent takes a star turn in the latest episode of WIRED “Masterminds,” a new series of online videos from the celebrated platform that explores the intersection of technology and culture. “Masterminds” spotlights experts in various fields who let the viewer inside the finer points of their work; earlier episodes included “Former CIA Operative Explains How Spies Use Disguises” and “Amazing Illusions: Using Human Bodies to Create Shadow Dances.” Watch “What Conductors Are Really Doing” now.
Music Director Kent Tritle leads a special performance at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine of Bach’s Cantata No. 140, “Wachet auf” (“Sleepers Awake”), in celebration of the 50th wedding anniversary of William McKeown and Constance Coles, with soloists Lianne Coble-Dispensa, soprano; Emerson Sieverts, tenor; and Peter Stewart, baritone.
