Répétiteur -----------> Conductor

I have often heard it said that répétiteurs have some of the best entrées into the conducting world. Why? Because of their ability to read from score, play from score, and work with both soloists and large groups of musicians.  Witness the appointment of David Angus to the position of Music Director at Glimmerglass Opera.  Angus got his start as a répétiteur for Opera North, from which he launched his conducting career.
