I went to the Symphony on Saturday night. As I sat there watching the conductor, I got to wondering about how the tail coat is constructed. I suspect it must be tailored individually. Otherwise I don’t see how he can wave his arms about and always have the coat settle perfectly on him. There were no lines where seams were pulling.
Another thing I got to thinking about was the fitness program a conductor must follow. I can’t imagine standing there, holdling my arms up and waving them around like that. Makes me tired to just think about it. A conductor has to be fit to do that.
